Project Summary

Supporting APEC Anti-Corruption authorities and Law Enforcement Agencies Network (ACT-NET) activities, this project intends to provide capacity building to APEC economies’ enforcement agents through a workshop to be held as a side event at SOM III 2019, in Chile. It should address effective tools to be able to investigate and prosecute individuals and corporations for their liability in domestic and foreign bribery, identifying an effective compliance program as a critical component of a company’s internal control and as an essential tool to detect domestic and foreign bribery.

The Workshop also aims to have law enforcement officials exchange information about their systems to evaluate and supervise compliance programs’ effectiveness.

APEC economies will be invited to share their experiences and private sector compliance experts and international organizations will be invited to provide effective tools addressing these topics. International cooperation will also be addressed.

A Guidebook with Best Practices will be developed after the Workshop, by a consultant hired for that purpose, and then distributed as a digital APEC publication.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: Having in consideration that APEC’s main goals are to support sustainable economic growth and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region, promoting free and open trade and investment, promoting and accelerating regional economic integration, encouraging economic and technical cooperation and facilitating a favourable and sustainable business environment, this project intends to address the detection, investigation and prosecution of domestic and foreign bribery of individuals and corporations, as a major problem for business transactions, domestically and internationally.

Considering the average that the Asia-Pacific region has in the Corruption Perception Index (44), which places the great majority of APEC economies with a score less than 50 on the index, this Capacity Building Workshop will allow economies to strengthen their anti-bribery enforcement laws, policies and compliance from corporations, in order to avoid corrupt practices while trading and doing business within APEC region. In this regard, all APEC economies will benefit from the project. By including law enforcement agents and private sector compliance experts in the discussions and deliberations, the Project will encourage an adequate coordination and alliance between them and more transparent business transactions in the region. 

This project is in direct benefit of APEC developing economies, since it addresses a general problem such as corruption that undermines society and business transactions globally.

Article 26 of UNCAC requires all parties to establish liability of legal persons. Addressing it will support implementation of APEC economies’ obligations under the UN Convention against Corruption. 

Relevance – Eligibility: The Project is aligned with the following founding priorities of APEC Support Fund (ASF) – General Fund, established by the Senior Officials Meeting (SOM for 2018) and ECOTECH Priority Themes articulated in the Manila Framework which are: 1) Developing Human Capital, specially focused to strength capacity building of technicians and specialist in the field. The project will develop human capital (law enforcement agents with capacity building); 2) Developing and strengthening the dynamism of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). They will be addressed as corporations that need compliance programs and it will generate a business opportunity; and 3) Integration into the global economy, it will promote international trade between economies. It surely contributes to the integration of global economy and promotes the development of knowledge-based economies. 

Relevance – Capacity Building: This project intends to provide capacity building to APEC economies’ law enforcement agencies to develop, and implement effective tools, abilities, skills and technical knowledge to be able to detect, investigate and prosecute individuals and corporations for their liability in domestic and foreign bribery offenses. In this regard, the project has a long term approach, since the Workshop will address policies and practices for APEC member economies to improve their institutions and regulations to identify an effective compliance program as a critical component of a company’s internal control and as an essential tool to detect domestic and foreign bribery.

Capacity building will be provided by experts from APEC economies’ law enforcement agencies and from International Organizations, such as World Bank and other similar, including a worldwide point of view. This is considered an opportunity for APEC economies, in order to help them to comply with their international commitments and also allowing internal and regional replicability.

Since corporate liability is addressed in this Workshop, it will also benefit international business transactions, attaining sustainable growth and equitable development in the Asia-Pacific region; reduce economic disparities among APEC economies, that are particularly affected by corruption, improves the economic and social well-being of the people, since transparent transactions allow the business market to function adequately, with better prices, in direct benefit of the people.

Objectives

1) Identify and compile which are the key elements of effective compliance programs in order to provide law enforcement agents with tools to conduct a good investigation that may allow prosecution or other resolution;

2) Provide participants with effective tools and skills to investigate individual and corporate criminal liability in domestic and foreign bribery in the Asia pacific region;

3) Exchange information about APEC economie’s domestic systems of evaluation, supervision and/or monitoring of an effective Compliance Program by legal persons;

4) Strengthen international cooperation between APEC economies in the investigation and prosecution of domestic and international bribery, in particular regarding liability of legal persons; and

5) Prepare and publish a Guidebook of best practices acquired in the Workshop addressing the previous topics.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC:  This project is in conform with the theme of APEC 2017,”Promoting Sustainable, Innovative and Inclusive Growth”, and the theme of APEC 2018, “Harnessing Inclusive Opportunities, Embracing the Digital Future - Promoting Inclusive and Sustainable Growth”, which efficiently improving the integrity and good governance of public sectors, and lowering the trades and investment barriers among APEC economies. In this regard, it follows the Leader’s Declaration 2017, who “reaffirmed their commitment to fostering integrity in the public and private sectors and fighting corruption” and also creating an enabling environment, including by promoting business ethics, for MSMEs to engage in activities that would lead to a sustainable and inclusive Asia-Pacific.”

It also will be in connection to the 2019 priorities regarding connectivity within APEC economies and cross-fora collaboration, promoting more transparency in business transactions among the APEC region. It surely will provide capacity building to law enforcement agents, regarding corruption topics, which are transversal through all APEC commercial activities, undermining the sustainable growth.

It will address companies and corporations compliance with anticorruption laws as a key element for development. 

Alignment – Forum: First of all, this project addresses ACTWG areas of work stated in their Multiyear Strategic Plan 2013-2021, such as promoting the effective implementation of existing APEC commitments; support the APEC growth strategy; giving full play to the role of ACTNET and enhance public-private partnerships and encourage civil society engagement.

Specifically, the project intends to strengthen the role of ACTNET, a network under the auspices of the ACTWG, by enhancing capacity building and permanent training of APEC anti-corruption authorities and law enforcement agencies. In this regard, the project supports ACTNET main goals, such as to share experiences, cases studies, investigative techniques, tools and practices in order to help APEC economies to build more efficient cross border cooperation and enhance capacity of economies to fight against corruption and bribery) and also, to promote a better governance and compliance with international standards and commitments. On the other hand, the project intends to enhance public-private partnership and encourage civil society engagement, by including the participation and involvement of international organizations, civil society, academia and private sector. In addition, it will promote the 2014 APEC General Elements of Effective Voluntary Corporate Compliance Programs and build upon a prior workshop held in Lima, Peru in 2016 on anti- bribery compliance programs and incentives. Last, but not least, it will encourages the sharing and compilation of member economies’ good practices in promoting social engagement in anti-corruption.

Beneficiaries and Outputs

Outputs:

1)  Capacity Building Workshop: From August 20 -21 2019, a two-day ACTNET Capacity Building Workshop will be held in Chile on the side of SOM 3 in the City of Puerto Varas. The first day and a half will consist of expert presentations and experiences of the participants in investigation and prosecution of domestic and foreign bribery, addressing individual and corporate liability, trying to identify key elements of effective compliance programs and systems to evaluate, monitor and supervise them. Incentives for self-disclosure for legal persons will be addressed, as well as elements that might serve as deterrence factor to avoid corrupt practices. The second half of the second day will include participants from the private sector, for them to share their experiences in compliance after being investigated by a law enforcement agency in some APEC economies, and therefore allow discussion between public and private sector.

2) Summary Report. At the end of the Workshop a brief document, of no more than 5 pages,with the conclusions, recommendations and lessons learned from the Workshop will be drafted and summarized by the consultant, and then distributed amongst participants of the workshop and the ACTNET and ACTWG members. Despite the indicated target audience, the document will  be also uploaded to the APEC MDDB.

3)  Guidebook on “Best practices in monitoring and supervising effective compliance programs”. The same inputs of the summary report, plus integrated analysis and research of the situation, focused on the best practices for monitoring and supervising compliance programs will be included in a guidebook that will be distributed amongst participants, ACTNET, ACTWG Members, and APEC community through an APEC publication, throughout the first smester of 2020. The extension of the Guidebook will depen on the results of the workshop and the research made by the consultant. 

Outcomes: The Capacity Building Workshop is designed to provide capacity and skills building to enable APEC economies to fully address better investigations and prosecution of domestic and foreign bribery allowing law enforcement agencies to identify key elements in effective compliance programs, in particular how to evaluate, monitor or supervise them.

Since international organizations will be invited to participate, other stakeholders will be providing their points of view and the inclusion of the private sector will allow the possibility of exchange of experiences between them and the public sector. It is mostly desirable, that participants will go back home being able to share the adopted knowledge within their organizations and to try to include that knowledge within their daily work.

In the medium-term, we expect that economies will improve their enforcement in domestic and foreign bribery enforcement and allow them to design adequate systems of monitoring and supervising the effectiveness of compliance programmes. We also aim to facilitate dialogue between public and private sector, in order for them to work together in integrity, transparency and compliance issues. 

The Guidebook intends to be a practical long-term tool and research material for APEC economie´s law enforcement and other public officials involved in monitoring or supervising the adoption of effective compliance programs by legal persons, that facilitates the investigation of corporate liability as well as the checking of effective compliance after a settlement is agreed. It is also expected to be consulted by the general public, since it will be published in the APEC website. 

Beneficiaries: The participants of the workshop from APEC member economies will be the direct beneficiaries of the project. As it was mentioned in previous sections, the Capacity Building Workshop is addressed to representatives from law enforcement agencies from each APEC member economy.

Therefore, direct beneficiaries should be:

·  Senior prosecutors, investigators, police officers, analysts and accountants that are involved in investigation and prosecution of corruption and cases, including foreign and domestic bribery. Other senior professionals and/or advisors involved in international cooperation and mutual legal assistance.

·  Public officers in charge of monitoring and/or evaluating compliance programs.

Indirect beneficiaries would be:

·  Relevant international organizations, such as UNODC, OECD, World Bank, Interpol and others.

·  Representatives from private sector of APEC economies (in particular SMES), such as CEO, managers, controllers, compliance officers or other representatives from private corporations, interested in effective compliance. Representatives from companies or consultants in charge of designing and/or supervising compliance programs.

Members of the civil society, such as general public, ONGs such as Transparency International or others, academia and policy maker institutions from APEC economies and non member APEC economies, that will be able to improve the social accountability and the regulation regarding compliance.

Dissemination

In the first place, it is expected that law enforcement agents who attend the Workshop will disseminate the contents, lessons learned and best practices in their economies’ agencies. Presentations and working material from the workshop will be distributed and made available through soft copy to the participants by email after the workshop, to use them in their economies. The Summary Report , which will be uploaded at the APEC MDDB, will support this task. As said before, a Guidebook on “Best Practices in Monitoring and Supervising Effective Compliance Programs” will be drafted by a consultant and, once approved by ACTNET and ACTWG, it will to become an APEC Publication for its dissemination and access to the general public and will reside or be published on the APEC Publications Database. 

None of the outcomes of the project will be for sale. 

All of the outcomes will be previously circulated by email to all participants to the Workshop and to the delegates at the ACTWG and at the ACTNET. 

The target audience will be all the beneficiaries of the project previously mentioned, together with the APEC economies, since the fighting of corruption allows better trading and business transactions amongst them.

Gender

The workshop organizers will ensure the sufficient female presentation at the workshop, targeting at 40 percent and plus of female participation rate. This intends to strengthen skills, capacity building and leadership of women in their respective agencies and economies. To ensure the creation of a conducive environment and the equal representation of both men and women, necessary steps will be taken during the workshop planning and implementation stages: 

1)  Specific effort will be placed on identifying and inviting female subject matter experts in the field, who will be sought to share their expertise at the workshop and would be given the preferred opportunity to present at the workshop. At least 30% of speakers should be women.

2)  The call for nominations from economies will place due consideration in ensuring that there are no gender biases in selection of participants from economies and that there are sufficient numbers of women nominated for the event.

3) When hiring a contractor, female gender applicants will have bonus in the final decision.

4)  Gender information will be collected during the workshop participant nomination process, and the nomination of female participants will be strongly encouraged.

This project will benefit women by providing them the targeted technical skills and knowledge training, which would help them become the subject matter experts and empower them in their corresponding institutions. By acquiring these skills, their leadership in their respective agencies and economies should increase, empowering them in the performing of their duties.

5) PO of this project are women.

In addition, the project proponents will ensure that the evaluation forms to be distributed at the end of the workshop will include information on gender for disaggregating of data for project assessment. Sex aggregated data will be included in the project completion report to inform the project.

Risks

The following are some potential risks that would need to be appropriately managed and mitigated:

1)  Generating enough interest and participation in the workshop

Hosting a workshop in Chile addressed to APEC participants poses a risk in that a great majority of potential attendees will have to travel from the Asian region, having in consideration the large distance to get to the venue. Therefore, an interesting agenda, good speakers and timely information should be ways of mitigating this risk. To ensure the sufficient interest and participation in this workshop, we will engage APEC members (and other related fora) actively and continuously throughout the different stages of the planning process. We will assign the point of contact whom the potential participants could contact directly regarding any questions, problems, and issues. We will also share the tentative workshop agenda early on with potential participants to encourage their participations.To mitigate this risk, the workshop has been planned to be hosted together with the ACTWG and ACT Net SOM III meetings, in order to allow participants to be able to attend all activities, including the workshop, independently on the funding issues. This will facilitate engagement of APEC travel elegible economie’s participants.

Early circulation of the information, at the Plenary Meeting of the ACTWG SOM I and intersessional communications addressed to the focal points, and to counterparts in law enforcement agencies of APEC economies. 

2)  Appropriating participants/experts/quality speakers

This will be managed by reaching out to speakers early and actively engaging international organizations (OECD/UNCAC/OAS/UNPD/WORLD BANK) to secure experts’ participation; and by implementing nomination and screening process with pre-set criteria to ensure the participation of targeted officials with the right training needs, skills, and experience. 

3)  Economies not applying knowledge learned or adopting recommendations from the project

Other than ensuring the participants with the right skills and background to attend the workshop, we will store all of the data, training materials, methodology documents, and project report online at the APEC MDDB. It will allow all APEC economies to have easy access to data, materials, and be able to share and disseminate the material with their relevant home economy parties. Online storage at the APEC MDDB and APEC publication database, will allow all audiences to have equal and free access to the resources produced by the project for future use. We will also list all our core experts and their contact information, so participants could reach out to them directly to solicit advices, and future opportunities for collaboration and technical assistance. 

4)  Hiring a Consultant

It has been proposed to hire a consultant to help organize the workshop and to summarize de outcomes and draft a guidebook with best practices. To hire an adequate consultant will depend on the applicants for the position. Therefore, close work with friend economies for them to propose qualified candidates to invite to the process and research in APEC databases of previous consultants hired will be encouraged. Qualified candidates must have worked previously as consultants, employees or advisors of international organizations, and / or should have assessed, advised or participated in a previous APEC project. Female participants will have higher score in the tender. Candidates should have worked previously in corruption topics, in the field or as researchers. 

5)  Low participation of women in the project

Although we expect a major participation of women in the project, in particular at the workshop, it is not possible to force nominations. Therefore, we will incentive their participation through direct contact with law enforcement agencies, ACTWG and ACT Net members and promoting one of APEC 2019 priorities, which is “Women and Inclusive Growth”. The nomination process will consider to set a quota of 40 % of female participation and women will be given priority in order to meet that target. This information will be widely circulated. 

6)  Low participation from the private sector

Since it is not possible to assure the participation from the private sector, strong efforts will be made to socialize the information about the workshop with ABAC, business associations and SMEs associations, for them to participate in the workshop, and also to provide speakers. Women participants will be especially welcomed.

Monitoring and Evaluation

The workshop organizers set up the targets of 50 participants from Law Enforcement Agencies and other mentioned beneficiaries from APEC economies in the first portion of the workshop, and 10 additional participants from the private sector in the second portion of it. Also, we target at least 75 percent of economy participation rate (15-16 participating APEC economies, at least 8 of them sending APEC eligible funded participants), 40 percent of female participation rate and at least 5 best practices shared, and at least 3 expert recommendations.

Project monitoring and assessment to meet these targets will be carried out throughout the workshop implementation process: 

1)  Monitoring report will be produced to measure the implementation process to Program Director, as requested by the APEC Secretariat.

2)  In addition to the Monitoring Report requested by the APEC Secretariat, the Project Overseer will produce a Progress Report, after the end of the workshop to the APEC Secretariat, with results of the evaluation with feedback from participants and information regarding women attendance and other statistics and indicators.

3)  An evaluation form will be circulated at the end of the workshop to provide the feedback from participants, and allow the project overseers to measure the results of the workshop.

4)  The workshop organizers together with the consultant will gather statistics on these indicators during the participant nomination process and the outcomes of the evaluation from participants. These indicators and results from the participant’s evaluation will be presented in the, the Additional Implementation Report.

Linkages

The project focuses investigation and prosecution of individuals and corporations, for their liability in domestic and foreign bribery, with special stress on effectiveness of compliance programs. Systems of evaluating and monitoring effectiveness of compliance programs by enforcement officials have not been addressed before in APEC workshops. Therefore, these topics should be relevant for other fora related to business and international trade and transactions. Since the cooperation between different forums is important to eradicate corruption, the purpose of the workshop is sharing best practical experiences in APEC region and acquiring effective investigative tools for law enforcement. Therefore, we will invite international organizations such as OECD, UNODC and TI for sharing their experiences with the participants. Since enhancing the cooperation between public and private sector is relevant to the working group and for the project, participants from other fora will be invited to the workshop. The information and concrete advice that will come up at the workshop will be provided to ABAC, SMEWG, APEC and SOM. This workshop also builds upon previous APEC guidance such as the 2014 APEC General Elements of Effective Voluntary Corporate Compliance Programs.

Sustainability

The participants can apply the knowledge, skills, and expertise acquired through the workshop to their future work, in investigating and prosecuting domestic and foreign bribery cases. They will also acquire knowledge in effective compliance programs and how to monitor their implementation.

They can serve as the subject matter experts in their organizations and share their knowledge with their colleagues and staff; and they can access relevant papers, technical documents and data online, revisit the workshop materials, and continue to build on their expertise acquired at the workshop. And through the workshop, they can develop contacts and build a network with colleagues and experts from other economies and various international organizations for future knowledge sharing and collaboration.

After the workshop, the participant list and their contact information will be shared with the participants of the workshop; workshop materials and relevant data, papers and technical documents will be posted online at the APEC MDDB that allows free, equal access; participants will be encouraged to reach out to experts with questions or potential collaboration opportunities on policy discussion, research, or capacity building.

Considering that the project overseers are active participants at the ACTWG meetings, and are the focal point at the ACT Net, they will incentive the APEC economies to address the project’s topic in the future group meetings, since bribery investigations as well as corporate liability have been included in the working group’s strategic plan.

Direct Labour

Consultant

·   Consultant will be hired to start his/her work in July organizing the workshop to be held in August, contacting speakers and helping with methodology.

·   He/she will continue his/her work in August, and is supposed to be helping with last details of the workshop one week prior to the activity, in research tasks, in Santiago, and then travel to Puerto Varas.

·   During the workshop, consultant will be in charge of helping with methodology, as moderator and also taking notes to prepare the Summary Report.

·   During September/October, consultant will have to draft the Guidebook for Law Enforcement Agents to investigate individual and corporate liability in domestic and foreign bribery.

·   The consultant’s fee will include all the activities previously described, and others that may be needed during the project.

·   Contractor shouldn’t have a monthly payment, since it is one single contract for US10.500. 30% of the total honorarium should be payed after the drafting of the final agenda; 20% should be paid at the end of the workshop, once he/she delivers the summary report.The pending 50% should be paid after he/she delivers the final Guidebook.

·   If contractor is Chilean, airfare and per diem to Puerto Varas will be considered, but no airfare or per diem to Santiago. If the contractor is from abroad, airfare and travel expenses have been considered in the budget, considering Santiago and Puerto Varas, since research tasks must be performed in the week prior to the workshop.

·  Travel expenses payments should be reimbursed to the contractor by APEC. Detailles of reimbursement procedures should be introduced in the contract. 

Short term administrative and clerical staff: An outsourcing service should be hired to provide sufficient administrative staff to carry on duties during the workshop, and assistance for participants. Since this staff needs to be prepared in their duties, thei should be hired a few days prior to the workshop. The outsourcing service fee includes honorarium and all kind of expenses of the staff, even transportantion to the city of Puerto Varas. No labour contract should be signed, just a service contract with the outsourcing company. It is noted that APEC Secretariat will provide the contract.

Waivers

It is anticipated that speakers and active participants from travel-eligible economies may request advance payment of travel expenses (airfare and per diem). Therefore, the project is requesting advance payment for speakers and participants from travel-eligible economies.
