What is an SOE,The OECD Guidelines on Corporate,Governance of State Owned Enterprises. lay out that any corporate entity recognised,by national law as an enterprise and. in which the state exercises ownership,should be considered as an SOE This. includes joint stock companies limited,liability companies and partnerships. limited by shares Statutory corporations,with their legal personality established.
through specific legislation should be,considered as SOEs if their purpose and. activities or parts of their activities are of,a largely economic nature. What are corrupt and irregular,Corruption refers to the abuse of public. or private office for personal gain This,includes the active or passive misuse. of powers of public officials appointed,or elected for private financial or other.
benefits OECD 2008 Irregular practices,are referred to as broader instances of. breaking SOE integrity policies including,internal company programmes functions. people processes or controls that seek to,prevent detect or address risks of waste. and abuse Such irregular practices,harmful in their own right may be linked. to or open avenues for corrupt behaviour,Who should do what.
The OECD Guidelines on Corporate,Governance of State Owned Enterprises. imply that the state on a whole of,government basis should implement. an ownership policy a designated,ownership entity within the state should. be responsible for defining the objectives,of individual SOEs and monitoring their. performance the SOE s board of directors,should be responsible for approving.
strategy and monitoring management and,the management should be responsible for. the SOE s corporate operations, State owned enterprises SOEs are a main conduit for states. to exercise their roles as an economic actors The benefits of. SOE ownership are economic political and social So too are. the costs when mismanagement or abuse occurs, Today SOEs account for 22 of the world s largest companies and. their role as global competitors is growing as the boundaries of markets. increasingly extend beyond geographic borders They are often. concentrated in sectors with strategic importance for the state and. society and are increasingly operated like private firms. The more pronounced presence of SOEs in the global marketplace has. been marked by certain high profile scandals and occasional evidence of. a susceptibility of SOEs to corruption This raises questions about what. might make SOEs susceptible to corruption and how policy makers can. act to maximise their productivity by raising their integrity. The OECD report on SOEs and corruption answers these questions in. Through an analysis of the perceptions and recent experiences of. 347 high level SOE officials and board members, Through a review of legal frameworks and approaches at the state. level as reported by representatives of national state ownership. agencies or ministries, The report analyses data collected through two surveys spanning 37.
OECD and non OECD countries The surveys focused on both the most. severe forms of corruption such as bribery and on other rule breaking. and irregular practices that are harmful in their own right and that may be. representative of both corporate and public governance gaps. What is the scale of corruption in SOEs,of respondents reported observing corrupt acts. or other irregular practices in their company,over the last three years The instances of. corruption reported most often involved employees and mid level. Source Based on 347 responses to the 2017 OECD Survey of anti corruption. and integrity in SOEs,The risk of corrupt practices in and around SOEs. In almost half of the participating SOEs comprising 42 of all respondents at least one respondent reported that. corrupt and related irregular practices took place in their company in the last three years In the last year alone 47 of. all respondents reported that an average of 3 of annual corporate profits were lost to corruption and other irregular. practices SOEs that received complaints through their claims and advice channels in the last 12 months estimated that. 40 were linked to corruption or related irregularities. These perception data provide a strong indication that the threat of corruption and irregular practices in and around. SOEs is real Digging deeper the report compares perceived experiences with corruption over the last three years with. the risks and challenges of the present,Key findings.

The greatest obstacles to integrity in SOEs relate to.

other irregularities They also report taking fewer actions to avoid known corruption risks than those SOEs with. entirely commercial objectives, SOEs with entirely commercial objectives are more likely to see the allocation of operational budget to integrity as. more of an investment or asset than SOEs with public policy objectives Overall SOEs see financing integrity as. more of a cost or expense than private companies, In face of known corruption risks SOEs generally appear less risk averse or less ready to take action than private. companies This could reflect the fact that SOEs are legally obliged to conduct certain activities and consequently. have less freedom than private firms to walk away from dubious propositions.

Understanding the specific challenges for SOEs, Non management employees and managers in private firms face many of the same incentives and opportunities to. engage in corrupt practices as those in SOEs However the report provides perception based evidence that some. of the risks may be increased for SOEs Opportunistic behaviour leading to corruption may be derived from a too. public to fail mentality in which SOEs are protected by their state ownership their market dominant position or their. involvement in the delivery of public services and are insulated from the same threat of bankruptcy and hostile take. over that private companies face Opportunistic behaviour may also arise out of SOEs operations in sectors with high. value and frequent transactions or within complex regulatory frameworks that unless well designed can provide a. smokescreen for non compliant behaviour, SOE respondents consider the greatest corruption related risks to be both internal and external to the company. External pressures such as undue influence by the state in SOE operations may push employees and managers. to break rules and or provide opportunities for exploiting their position On the one hand SOEs with public policy. objectives may be more able to justify illicit activity to compensate for financial losses or reduced profit margins that can. be associated with delivering on policy objectives On the other hand SOEs and other firms with entirely commercial. objectives may try to justify corruption because of the pressure to remain competitive or to perform. Corruption risk avoidance and mitigation what are SOEs doing. The majority of SOEs have rules and mechanisms in place. to mitigate corruption risks In the last year SOEs allocated. an estimated 1 5 of their operational budgets to preventing. and detecting corruption Almost half of respondents. considered this as an asset or worthwhile investment but. 40 also indicated that the financial and human resources The operating budget that 80 of SOEs. available to invest in integrity are at least somewhat allocate to detecting and addressing. inadequate Just over half of respondents reported that corruption and breaches of integrity. their company provides anti corruption or integrity related. training to all employees board members and management. Ninety percent of SOEs treat corruption and integrity risks Internal rules for managing corruption risk. explicitly in risk assessment most often categorised as. compliance risks or less often as strategic risks Those 1 Conflict of interest. that conduct risk assessments on an annual basis as is. 2 Public procurement as procurer, most common report fewer risks and consider their internal.

Note in order of most commonly reported, of corruption Those most common are to do with conflict of. interest charitable contributions and engagement in public. procurement Some SOEs use a variety of approaches to. third party due diligence with one third of SOEs having severed a business relationship because of the risk of or. exposure to corruption Companies often offer multiple channels for complaints that are more often classified as. confidential and reported to the CEO or a board member or both. Although the majority of SOEs have some arrangements for risk management and internal control the evidence in this. report demonstrates either a lack of controls an ineffectiveness of controls or an override of controls Investments in. integrity may continue to be rendered less effective until the more systemic issue of a lack of a culture of integrity is. How do SOEs view the allocation of budget to promoting integrity.

anonymous 34 corruption and integrity of SOEs,Where are the breakdowns in the system. We see that many of the SOEs that witnessed corruption or other irregular practices in their company in recent years. had a series of integrity mechanisms in place including corruption specific controls and risk management processes. internal and external audit reporting mechanisms and codes of conduct or ethics The evidence shows that there is. more work to be done in better assessing a company s risk profile in order to adopt internal controls that are more. tailored to the risks faced In some cases there is a need to increase their efficiency. However the greatest obstacles facing SOEs have to do with human behaviour and relationships Controls are a. critical part of corporate governance but must be coupled with a culture of integrity to counter pressure and undue. influence where corruption is a systemic issue and opportunistic behaviour by individuals where it is not. The top 10 obstacles to integrity in SOEs, 1 A lack of a culture of integrity in the political and public sector. 2 A lack of awareness among employees of the need for or priority placed on integrity. 3 Opportunistic behaviour of individuals,4 A lack of awareness of legal requirements. 5 Perceived likelihood of getting caught is low,6 A lack of a culture of integrity in the company. 7 Overly complex or burdensome legal requirements, 8 Inadequate financial or human resources to invest in integrity and prevent corruption.
9 Ineffective internal control or risk management, 10 Ineffective channels for whistle blowing reporting misconduct. Figure 5 How do SOEs view the allocation of budget to promoting integrity. The importance of transparency and disclosure by SOEs. behaviour by individuals To a lesser degree challenges also arise from ineffective control and accountability including ineffective internal control or risk management and the company culture including a lack of awareness amongst employees of the need for integrity
