Corruption mitigation includes very simple measures such as:

  • sending beneficiaries a letter in their own language:
    • tell them about the benefits they are supposed to receive (including the amount of any money) programs which will affect them, and selection processes.
    • inform them that they don't need to pay any money or any fee to get selected as beneficiaries.
    • even if they can't read, they can generally read numbers, and can often find a literate person if they have any doubts.
  • putting in place “whistleblower” programs
  • strengthening internal audit functions.
  • putting things in writing.
  • using an independent translator.
  • using independent panels for making decisions, such as selecting villages.
  • using a money dealer rather than having staff deal with money.
