The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) prohibits U.S. individuals and entities from bribing foreign government officials to benefit their business interests. It also requires accurate record-keeping and internal controls to prevent corruption. For procurement and supply chain professionals, understanding FCPA is crucial to managing legal and reputational risks associated with international business transactions. Compliance with FCPA ensures ethical business conduct, supports anti-corruption efforts, and enhances corporate integrity.
