Bribery commonly occurs in Thailand procurement projects. Institutional norms and the high potential for under-reporting or mixing of expenses, given the large amounts of money involved, contribute to this propensity. As bribery in such projects not only offends the notion of justice, but the notions of property and economy as well, it is considered a serious criminal offence in both the private and public sectors. This article explains Thailand’s current anti-bribery and relevant regulations with regard to public procurement.
