Fighting the Spread of Corruption


A new KPMG Forensics survey suggests multinational organizations in the United States continue to face challenges with key issues related to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The survey, completed in summer 2008, found that 85% of the respondents had an FCPA compliance program, but many struggled with fundamental elements, including: performing effective due diligence on foreign agents/third parties (82%); auditing third parties for compliance (76%); and performing due diligence during merger or acquisition activities (73%).
