WASHINGTON — Corporations, including Wal-Mart, are endorsing a new initiative intended to gather information on government officials, organizations and individuals who seek bribes as part of the cost of doing business.
A nonprofit group called Trace International Inc. launched Bribeline.org on Wednesday, a Web site with an anonymous questionnaire designed to find out who sought a bribe and in what form payment was to be rendered. Based in Annapolis, Md., Trace specializes in antibribery due diligence reviews and compliance training for international sales agents, consultants and suppliers.
