The Objectives are supposed to be SMARTER:
The Objectives should be:
- a) be in accordance with the anti-bribery policy;
- b) be measurable (if practicable);
- c) take into account – internal and external issues and Interested parties’ requirements and the
Bribery risks identified:
- d) be achievable;
- e) be monitored;
- f) be communicated internally and externally in accordance with procedures;
- g) be updated as appropriate, whenever required.
The organization shall retain documented information on the performance of the anti-bribery management system objectives. When planning how to achieve its anti-bribery management system objectives, the organization shall determine and keep in mind:
- what will be done;
- what resources will be required;
- who will be responsible;
- when the objectives will be achieved;
- how the results will be evaluated and reported;
- who will impose sanctions or penalties;
Generally, the Objectives are:
1) Proposing an all-encompassing and precise definition of corruption that clearly differentiates corrupt actions from other types of legal, criminal, or ethically problematic actions.
2) Creation of a core-panel data-set of indicators (wherever relevant) allowing the tracing of corruption levels over time location-wise through identifying new indicators documented in the project with established, perception-based ones.
3) Engaging in historical and contemporary case study research and quantitative and qualitative or both comparisons across cases to explain why countries reach different equilibria with regard to government accountability and the control of corruption.
4) Explain governance change, if relevant and as applicable- as documented by time-bound series through global models developed through quantitative comparative analysis.
5) Conducting a complete survey on monitoring corruption and quality of governance throughout the entire activities and processes that documents the diversity of contemporary governance landscapes, regulatory frames, and anti-corruption strategies in the country and in other relevant regions/locations.
6) Documenting the aspects and overall impacts and cost of corruption through a variety of case studies across the globe.
7) Providing the first systematic study of the impact of financial on the governance of recipient users / interested parties.
8) Investigate the overall success or failure of a significant number of anti-corruption ‘leaders’ in relation to the empowering contexts of the organization.
9) Investigating the success or failure of a significant number of anti-corruption projects and analyze what explains the variation in outcomes.
10) Disseminating the actual findings of the project through procedures and policy papers.
