Integrity Pacts in South Korea - Country Overview

South Korea has implemented an Integrity Pact in public procurement in the city of Seoul starting in 2000. The use of IPs expanded to other municipalities and a version of an IP was developed to apply to the contracts of the Ministry of Defense starting in 2002. As the use of the IPs expanded, the form of the IPs also changed – with some IPs not resulting in the oversight of external monitors. According to the 2015 Learning Review, the South Korean Contract Act of 2012 was amended to include provisions for the IP. Further details, however, are not yet available.
