    Scope, Approach, Limitations and Key Assumptions

    Scope

    The purpose of the scope section is to outline the precise nature of the Anti-Bribery Health Check in terms of the scope of the independent review, for example, whether this was performed for an entire organisation, or for a particular region or country, or for an operating group, business division, function or product line, which provides valuable insights into the breadth and depth of the review.

    Approach

    The purpose of the approach section is to outline the methodology behind how the Anti-Bribery Health Check was conducted, for example, were the responses self-assessed and then validated by an independent internal or external audit function, were employees individually interviewed by the audit team when forming the assessment or was this achieved via group workshops or similar.

    Limitations

    The purpose of the limitations section is to outline whether there were any constraints that should be taken into consideration in respect of the Anti-Bribery Health Check, for example, if the audit teams were unable to interview certain staff, or unable to access certain documents or unable to perform other checks then these should be described in this section.

    Key Assumptions

    The purpose of the key assumptions section is to outline any assumptions that were made during the course of performing the Anti-Bribery Health Check, which were unable to be verified at the time, for example, if no information was available about the size of the organisations business, such as the number of clients, accounts and transactions or the specific attributes of a product then assumptions may have had to be made.

    Executive Summary

    The executive summary section is meant to stand alone and summarise at a high-level the key findings, observations and recommendations.

    Overall findings

    The purpose of the overall findings section is to highlight the key themes, trends and issues identified during the process of conducting the Anti-Bribery Health Check.

    For example, this may include a statement or whether the organisation was found to understand the bribery and corruption risk profile, met the rules / compliance obligations, implemented an effective Anti-Bribery compliance program and continues to operate this effectively and is meant to serve as an executive summary of the entire review and should be written with this in mind – sharp and to the point!

    Alignment with review objectives

    The purpose of this section is to specifically call out whether the Anti-Bribery program is in line with the objectives set out in respect of independent reviews. Typically, the purpose of an independent review is four-fold:- firstly, to assess whether a reporting entity understands its Bribery and Corruption risk and has implemented proportionate controls to manage the risk; secondly, to assess whether the Anti-Bribery program complies with the rules/obligations; thirdly, whether the Anti-Bribery program was implemented effectively and finally, whether the Anti-Bribery program complies with the standards defined in internal policies and procedures.

    General Comments

    The purpose of the general comments section is to describe any additional information that is relevant to support the overall findings of the Anti-Bribery Health Check.

    Key Recommendations

    The purpose of the key recommendations section is to describe the remediation activities that have been identified to enable compliance gaps or control weaknesses to be rectified.

    Key Findings

    The purpose of the key findings section is to describe in more detail the key observations from the assessment in terms or the design and operational effectiveness of a particular element of the Anti-Bribery Program.

    Key Actions, Issues and Risks
