Research Article ACRN Blog: Audits and Anti-Corruption
In this blog post, ACRN Contributing Editor Paul Lagunes takes an in-depth look at auditing as a monitoring mechanism. He surveys the evidence thus far on the effectiveness of auditing as an anti-corruption tool and finds that while there is some data to suggest that audits can lead to the reduction of corruption, much more work is needed to understand the particular conditions under which audits are most effective.

Research Article text/texmacs Does Exposing Corrupt Politicians Reduce Corruption? Reputation and Accountability in Local Governments
The paper examines whether the disclosure of information about corruption practices induce a sustained reduction in corruption levels. The authors attempts to answer the question using publicly-available routine audit reports in Puerto Rico. The goverment has established a mechanism to routinely conduct municipal government audits, whose findings are then made publicly available and disseminated to media sources. Using a longitudinal dataset of corrupt violations constructed from the audit reports during the period 1987-2006, the authors compare the subsequent term governments’ levels of reported corruption for municipalities audited at different points in time around an election. The pre-election release of the audit reports led to significant shortterm reductions in municipal corruption levels and an increase in incumbent mayors’ electoral accountability. However, municipal corruption levels in the subsequent term are higher in municipalities audited preceding the previous election and these are concentrated among municipalities shown to have refrained from rent-seeking activities in the first audit. These findings are consistent with a political agency model of reputation dynamics in which, in equilibrium, rent-seeking is increasing in the incumbent’s reputation.
