OPDAT’s anticorruption program assists counterparts from other jurisdictions in analyzing, investigating, and prosecuting corruption pursuant to international standards, including the UN Convention Against Corruption. OPDAT’s anticorruption program aids U.S. law enforcement efforts by strengthening international cooperation and promoting evidence sharing around the globe.    

Additionally, OPDAT Resident Legal Advisors and OPDAT’s work with counterparts to address a broad array of anti-corruption matters and related issues -- such as financial crimes, money laundering, fraud, and cybercrime that facilitate corruption -- along with asset forfeiture and recovery.
