In the construction industry, the figures in most contracts are very high, and the contracts are financed from various sources (public or private funds). Many entities are involved in performing them, which may create favourable conditions for unethical practices, bribery and corruption. To prevent this, a risk map, which includes e.g. information about possible threats of abuses, is updated cyclically. Identified business risks are then put under close surveillance.
Within the Budimex Group, an Anti-Corruption Policy and the Anti-Trust Policy have been implemented. The Anti-Corruption Policy includes a list of permitted and prohibited conduct as well as procedures for suspected prohibited conduct. An integrated management system introduces the procedure “Ochrona interesów Grupy Budimex” [“Protecting the Interests of the Budimex Group”] (05-08), which defines a set of rules for dealing with suspected abusive acts or omissions, including suspected corruption. The procedure includes e.g. the instructions under the titles “Procedures for Cases of Private Financial Gain Offering Attempts and Employee’s Threatening Attempts” (05-08-02) as well as “Rules of Participation in Sponsored Events and other Actions Resulting in Possible Conflict of Interests” (05-08-03). The former lies down procedures where there is an attempt at offering a financial gain to an employee in return for given acts or omissions as well as where there is a threatening attempt. The latter formulates rules of participation in sponsored events and sets out situations having all the hallmarks of a conflict of interest, accepting and offering gifts. Whether these rules are adhered to or not is monitored and inspected by the Office of Internal Control, and supervised by the General Manager.
