So far, 47 PSUs have signed the Pact, he informed. Integrity Pact is a tool conceived by the Berlin-based Transparency International to fight corruption in public procurement through a voluntary agreement between a buyer and the prospective vendors/bidders, refraining both sides to exercise any corrupt influence on any aspect of the contract.
