Topic: Countering Corruption & The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

The energy sector is a prime target for corrupt actors: projects are large, there are substantial recurring fuel costs, and public oversight is challenging.  As the Caribbean looks to adopt advanced energy sources, the risk of corruption derailing the process looms in the background. This presentation walks through various international counter-bribery/corruption laws, with an emphasis on the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.  Understand what legal practitioners and procurement officers should know about best practices in this increasingly difficult and risky legal environment.
