TRACE Releases Report on Bribe Demands in the United States

%), officials of the party in office (8%), employees of state-owned entities (7%), members of the military (5%), city officials (4%), state officials (1%) and judges and judicial representatives (1%). 

Seven of the bribes demanded by government officials were reported as originating from the Office of the U.S. President or the Office of the U.S. Vice President.  According to the anonymous bribe reporters, demands from these offices occurred between 2002 and 2007.

According to TRACE's comparative analysis of bribe demand patterns in the seven nations for which it has completed reports, the U.S. has the lowest proportion of bribe demands made by government officials, and the highest proportion of bribes demands by private company officials.

"While the business incentive to provide the bribe may seem compelling, especially in a difficult economy, the risk-reward ratio shifts in light of increasing international enforcement of foreign bribery laws and vigorous enforcement in the United States of its domestic bribery laws.  In addition, the consequences of a b
