The booklet provides CGU’s recommendations to ensure transparency and integrity in public-private relations in view of the relaxation of new rules applicable to public hiring based on the decree of public calamity by the National Congress during the period of confronting the Covid-19 pandemic.
CGU describes practical actions that can be taken by companies, especially large-scale ones, to mitigate risks of corruption and fraud, and provides examples of sensitive interactions from the anti-corruption compliance perspective , including:
- the execution of collaboration agreements and partnerships;
- the anticipation of funds from contracts executed with the Public Administration;
- donations to public bodies and entities; and
- obtainment of reduced interest loans from public banks.
