London, (PRWEB) September 16, 2009
World-Check, the leading provider of end-to-end risk management services is proud to be associated with the City of London Police (CoLP) Overseas Corruption Assessment Project. World-Check is providing the project team with access to the Country-Check system which is used by organizations worldwide for country profiling and analysis, foreign market expansion assessments, risk scoring model inputs, enhanced due diligence rankings, and senior management and board reporting.
The OCA project aims to create a pool of information on overseas corruption, and the team will produce, in November 2009, an assessment of the extent and nature of corruption overseas. "Drawing on the private insights of four key categories including business in all sectors; the not-for-profit sector; Government; and law enforcement the report will be an independent compilation of insights and experiences, and will be made public so that readers can make practical use of it in their everyday work," said Detective Superintendent Colin Cowan.
"We are delighted that the City of London Police will be using Country-Check in support of this valuable project", said Daniel Peak, Chief Executive Officer of World-Check. "Risk is too subjective a concept to be universally defined and varies from country to country, and from one industry to the next. Country-Check's Political, Financial and Security dimensions enable users to adjust the risk settings to reflect user specific requirements for evaluating risk.
World-Check encourages companies and organisations operating abroad to participate in the project survey which can be accessed on the CoLP website: http://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/corporation/consultation/ocap/overseas_corruption_assessment_project.htm
