Integrity Management Committee (IMC) promotes and market the use of FIDIC’s Integrity Management System (FIMS) and Government Procurement Integrity Management System (GPIMS) as effective tools for curving the supply side of corruption. The IMC is responsible for the update of FIMS and GPIMS and developing friendlier and more marketable tools that can be adopted at least cost to the firms and procurement agencies. They follow up and support FIMS and GPIMS training and implementation programs among Member Associations’ consulting firms and selected procurement units.

The IMC work with other international organisations: World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO), Transparency International (TI), Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Economic Forum (WEF), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Confederation of International Contractors’ Associations (CICA) and the United Nations (UN), in the development of policies, guidelines and processes for the demand side of corruption. They also liaise with the International Financing Institutions (IFIs) for complementing and supporting their anti-corruption initiatives.

The IMC also improves awareness of integrity management within the younger members of the FIDIC and global engineering community as an effective and appropriate method of conducting the consulting business. Lastly, they assist the Executive Committee and the Secretariat on matters related to integrity management.
