Our Impact

There is a clear link between governance, corruption and ethical behavior. Poor governance creates myriad opportunities for corruption. Good governance does the opposite. A culture of integrity, therefore, is the antidote for corruption. The Trinidad & Tobago Transparency Institute (TTTI) is the catalyst that promotes the anti-corruption message throughout the region.

TTTI serves its nation by:

  • Encouraging the effectiveness of the Integrity Commission as an Anti Corruption Agency,
  • Promoting the regulation of Political Party Funding,
  • Advocating Transparency in Public Sector Procurement, and in procedures for Countering Bribery and Conflict of Interest,
  • Advocating and monitoring the adoption of TI’s Integrity Pact and the wider use of public consultation for major public projects.
  • Educating and Training Civil Society Organizations on how individuals and organizations can implement offensive measures against corruption.
Corruption and the lack of transparency eats away like a cancer at the trust people should have in their government. - Clinton
