IFAC issues anti-corruption tool for accountancy organisations
May 18, 2023
A new tool from the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) is now available to help professional accountancy organisations take leading roles in the anti-corruption fight in their jurisdictions, a news release said.
Global Fight, Local Actions, a workbook developed by IFAC, equips organisations and accountancy professional leaders with "the background and framework to craft bespoke approaches and messages that best fit their jurisdiction and needs".
IFAC also plans to build off the workbook with additional initiatives on priority anti-corruption areas, the release said, including the interconnected issues of sustainability reporting, public financial management, and financial literacy.
"Equipping our member organisations to lead anti-corruption efforts in their jurisdictions was one of our priority actions … which this new workbook delivers," said Scott Hanson, IFAC's director of Policy & Global Engagement. "We look forward to talking to PAOs [professional accountancy organisations] around the world to continue helping them develop their national anti-corruption advocacy plans."
