Collaboration to address bribery and corruption challenges

Basel Open Intelligence

During his former position as Compliance Operations Manager at LafargeHolcim, compliance and communications professional Kyle Lewis worked closely with the Basel Institute on developing a new open-source search tool to help compliance officers spot and analyse links between individuals, organisations and criminal activities. He kindly provided this testimonial for the Basel Institute's Annual Report 2018.

Over the last year, I’ve collaborated with the team at the Basel Institute on the development of their Basel Open Intelligence (BOI) tool. It has been a valuable exchange in order to develop a tool that brings added value to our organisation, as well as improving the screening capabilities of other private and public organisations. 

I fully believe that collaboration between private companies, public organisations and civil society is the best approach to addressing the challenge of bribery and corruption worldwide. 

The Basel Institute offers a forum as well as training and tools that provide exactly this type of exchange for the benefit of all involved. I look forward to continuing the collaboration in the years to come.
