Prevention of corruption in the BfS
Hardly any crime increases the burden on society so much as corruption does. It damages competition, the state and, last but not least, all taxpayers. Each case of bribery undermines people’s confidence in public administration exactly like in business conduct in the economy.
Prevention of corruption rates high in the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS). The federal Directive concerning the Prevention of Corruption of 30 July 2004 is implemented consistently. On a regular basis, the staff is informed about and sensitised for the dangers of corruption.
Measures to prevent corruption in the BfS
Among others, the measures to prevent corruption practised in the BfS include:
- Risk analyses of workplaces that are particularly susceptible to corruption (for example staff in purchasing functions),
- Regular information and training of the staff,
- Using anti-corruption clauses in service level agreements,
- Response plan for the event of punishable offences being suspected,
- In the context of commissioning: Obligation of non-officials pursuant to obligation law.
