Integrity Pacts in Kenya – Country Overview

To achieve the objective of reducing the incidence of corruption and unethical conduct, the Kenya Integrity Plan 2015 – 2019 encouraged the signing of Integrity Pacts by private sector actors in various tender proceedings. Since then, a myriad of tenders – issued both by public sector contracting authorities as well as private sector buyers – have made the signing of Integrity Pacts a mandatory pre-requisite for bidders participating in a tender.

While the texts of the IPs vary from one to the other, they all generally include undertakings by the bidders with respect to integrity and anti-corruption obligations. These IPs, however, do not always contain respective obligations of the contracting party and do not appoint independent monitors to oversee the tender or implementation process.

Some sample IPs from Kenya are available on this page.
