TRACE Releases Report on Bribe Demands in the United States
Date:12/6/2011

ANNAPOLIS, Md., Dec. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TRACE released the 2011 BRIBEline United States Report today, the organization's seventh analysis of demands for bribes reported in specific countries.  Previous reports have analyzed patterns of bribe demands in Brazil, Mexico, Ukraine, Russia, India and China.

"The United States Report is another important contribution to the prevention of bribery," said TRACE Founder and President Alexandra Wrage.  "BRIBEline provides greater insight into what bribe transactions look like.  Companies, in turn, can shift employee training from an academic or legal analysis to a more practical, real-world discussion about what to look for and how to respond."

The United States Report summarizes and analyzes 73 bribery demands in the U.S. reported anonymously to TRACE's online Business Registry for International Bribery and Extortion (BRIBEline) between July 11, 2007 and November 15, 2011.  

A key finding from the United States report is the prevalence of bribe solicitations made in exchange for an undue advantage.  Over one-third of bribe demands in the United States – the highest rate among countries studied to date by BRIBEline – are premised on an improper quid pro quo, such as winning new business (25% of all reported demands), agreeing to attempt to influence a government official in exchange for a bribe (5%) or receiving inappropriate favorable treatment, such as a favorable court ruling (4%).

The United States report also reveals that the private sector (representatives of companies) account for a significant source of bribe demands in the United States, representing 21% of all reported demands.  Nevertheless, the majority of bribe demands, nearly 60%, are made by a person associated with a government, whether at the federal, state or local level, including government officials (16%), the police (14
