Integrity Pact and IEM
Integrity Pact (IP) is aimed at preventing corruption and ensuring integrity in Public Procurement. The Central Vigilance Commission is the nodal authority for the implementation of IP in India.
Integrity Pact shall be applicable for procurements above Rs. 2 Crores. The pact essentially envisages the agreement between prospective vendors/bidders and buyers committing the persons / officials of both the parties not to exercise any corrupt influence on any aspect of the contract. Only those vendors/bidders who enter into such an integrity pact with the buyer would be competent to participate in the bid.
The CVC has nominated Independent External Monitors (IEMs) to monitor implementation of IP.
