I Paid a Bribe is GII’s online reporting platform that allows every person who comes across corruption in their daily lives to share their experience without fear of reprisal. In only a few simple steps, you can report on the nature, number, type, location, frequency and value of actual corruption acts on this website. Your reports will, perhaps for the first time, provide a snapshot of bribes paid, demanded or refused that are occurring across your community and the country as a whole. We do not use the information to assign individual blame but rather to advocate for improved governance systems and procedures as well as tighter law enforcement thereby reducing the scope of corruption in obtaining services from government and the private sector. ‘Support for the maintenance and promotion of the iPaidaBribe platform is provided through the USAID ‘Accountable Democratic Institutions and Systems Strengthening (ADISS) Project’.
