Business Case for Anticorruption in India: Principles, Economics and Application of Transparency Tools’ is the third and final publication of the Global Compact Network India's Collective Action Project (CAP) India. The publication quantifies the gains that a business accrues by implementing anti-graft policies in its operations. It is for the first time that examples on a business case for anticorruption are presented by companies headquartered in an emerging market, in this case India. The Business Case for Anticorruption publication is evidence of the journey of Indian businesses with the Global Compact Network India's Collective Action Project since 2011. From a time when companies were hesitant to speak to each other around transparency issues, to having the confidence to share economics of transparency tools, CAP India's stakeholders have come a long way.
The Centre of Excellence for Governance, Ethics and Transparency (CEGET) at UN Global Compact Network, India, (GCNI), has always taken a keen interest in developments related to the regulation of public procurement in India as part of its remit. CEGET identified eight core areas for seeking business recommendation that were arrived at through research and consultation, and shared with relevant stakeholders in the Government. The eight core areas, reflected in the White Paper, are: Coverage, Competition, Procurement of Proprietary Items, Sole Suppliers and Single Tenders, Transparency, Market Access, Grievance Redressal, Probity and Sustainable Public Procurement. A number of these recommendations are reflected in the General Financial Rules 2017. This is a welcome beginning, in the journey towards a consolidated Public Procurement Bill, which was the unanimous recommendation of business and is part of India’s global commitment.
Global Compact Network India, along with Grant Thornton as the Knowledge Partner, prepared a Thought Paper & launched at Gender Equality Summit, 2020.
