Managing conflicts of interest in both the public and private sectors has become a
major governance issue world-wide. Identifying and resolving specific conflicts
of interest can be difficult. This Toolkit focuses on specific techniques, resources
and strategies for identifying, managing and preventing conflict-of-interest situations
more effectively and increasing integrity in official decision-making which might
be compromised by conflicts of interest.This Toolkit provides non-technical, practical
help to enable officials to recognise problematic situations and help them to ensure
that integrity and reputation are not compromised. The tools themselves are provided
in generic form. They are based on examples of sound conflict-of-interest policy and
practice drawn from various OECD member and non-member countries. They have been designed
for adaptation to suit countries with different legal and administrative systems.
