Government Defence Anti-Corruption Index (GI) This Index is the first global analysis of corruption risk in defence establishments worldwide. We aim to give governments, armed forces, civil society and citizens the tools to avoid the dangers and inefficiencies that corruption in defence brings.

The assessor scored each question from 0-4, and provided a narrative response to explain that score. These assessments were peer reviewed.

Based on these assessments, each country was placed in a band, from A to F, and given scores in five risk areas: political, financial, personnel, operations, and procurement risk. Read More...

Defence Companies Anti-Corruption Index The purpose of this study is to provide solid data through which all defence companies can embed zero tolerance of corruption.

The results of the assessments for companies based on public information are presented in our index. Where companies provided internal information, TI-UK reviewed and discussed the documents with the company. The results of this exercise, showing the impact of this information, are presented separately. Read More...
