Integrity Pacts in South Africa – Country Overview

At least two South African state-owned enterprises (SOEs) have developed Integrity Pacts that it requires all suppliers or bidders to sign when engaging with the company or participating in a tender. The relevant IP texts from these SOEs indicate integrity and anti-corruption obligations of the supplier/bidder as well as obligations of the contracting authority. The IPs do not establish independent monitoring procedures.

The UN Global Compact’s South Africa local network recently tried to encourage the use of Integrity Pacts in the construction sector. Unfortunately, it persuaded neither the relevant public contracting agencies nor the construction industry associations to support the idea.
