Company Integrity Programme: Quick Self-Evaluation Tool (Quick SET)

How do you feel your company manage integrity risk ?

The Quick-SET, based upon key countering bribery international standards of Transparency International Business Principles, helps business quickly self-assess their systems in term of managing potential corruption risks. (The assessment will be done ANONYMOUSLY so you will only need to answer "Yes", "No" or "Plan" to questions bellow without providing any other information about your company). To have comprehensive evaluation of your corporate integrity programme, it is advisable to use Full Self-Evaluation Tool (Full-SET). You can also contact Towards Transparency (TI's national contact in Vietnam) for technical advice and/or support.
