Behavior Guide

Just in time for the U.S. aerospace and defense industry to institutionalize its drive for seeking more foreign military and direct-commercial sales abroad in coming years, the Justice Department has issued an unprecedented explanation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Recently, Transparency International U.K. estimated that the global cost of corruption in the defense sector now amounts to at least $20 billion annually.
