CREATe Leading Practices for Anti-Corruption helps companies build business processes to prevent and detect corruption. Here is the three-step program:


1. Online Self-Assessment

The first step is to measure existing business processes. This online, 60- to 90-minute self-assessment evaluates the maturity of your company’s – or your business partner’s – current business processes for detecting and preventing corruption in seven categories. Upon completion, you will receive scores in each category and a composite score. This gives you an immediate picture of the strengths and weaknesses of your program.


2. Expert Evaluation

In this step, you gain valuable insights from a CREATe expert in a discussion about the self-assessment and documents related to your anti-corruption business processes. You will have an opportunity to ask questions, elaborate on your current practices, and discuss ways to make improvements. After the independent evaluation, the CREATe expert gives you a second set of scores based on the evaluation and provides an analysis and benchmark report comparing your scores to the blinded, aggregated scores of other companies that have also taken the CREATe Leading Practices for Anti-Corruption self-assessment and independent evaluation. To help guide improvements, you receive a summary report with specific, actionable recommendations and suggested priorities.


3. Improvement Plan

The third and most important step is the Improvement Program. You will receive a comprehensive guide and complementary online course with information on anti-corruption laws and international guidelines, as well as tools for getting started, such as guidance on policies, procedures and controls; checklists for risk assessment and due diligence; training guidelines; and more.
