  • Will they be checking anything in Nigeria? I bet not!

  • You can bet that Shell has been checking and verifying third parties for a long time before the Bribery Act 2010 - google "FCPA".
    Is it really that strange that in a tender process an organisation is asking another organisation for a list of its policies, including anti-bribery and anti-corruption?

  • @Citilawfirmworker But this isn't a tender process, that happened last year. Shell are asking about law firms who are are acting on the other side of the table.

  • Kudos to Shell, but this is nothing new for US-based companies. Since 2005, my company has been screening ALL third parties who interact with foreign officials on our behalf. This includes lawyers, accountants, lobbyists, and even travel agents who help us get visas. It's a lot of work, but we've found it is worth the effort.
