International Compliance Officers are on The Front Line and Often Have Specialized Knowledge of Illegal Bribery Schemes and Companies Who Use Illegal Bribes to Obtain Government Contracts
International Compliance Officers are trained to identify illegal conduct including violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. When these compliance officers identify and properly report they violations to their superiors, these notices are commonly ignored or even worse retaliated against. For this reason, the CFTC and SEC use international bounty actions to reward compliance officiers who anonymously expose corporations who ignore or retaliate against compliance officers or auditors
Compliance Officers in Large Drug Companies Are Commonly Pressured to Ignore Bribes or Are Ignored When They Provide Evidence of Compliance Violations
Drug Company Compliance Officers are commonly ignored by their superiors when they provide notice of compliance violations or other illegal activity. Further, many drug companies pressure compliance officers to ignore bribes and other illegal conduct. In these situations where compliance officers provide notice of illegal conduct and the company fails to timely resolve the matters, compliance officers are encouraged to expose the illegal conduct through bounty actions.
The pressure on drug company compliance officers is typically more intense in pharmering countries. This pressure comes from several pharmaceutical companies seeking to obtain footholds in pharmering countries. Some drug companies already have footholds in some key pharmerging countries. These footholds include Abbott’s acquisition of Piramal Healthcare in India — a deal that could potentially make the US giant the top player in this country. Bayer's and Novartis' investments in China including Novartis' commitment to invest $1 billion USD in R&D in China and its $125 million USD investment to buy 85 percent stake in a privately held vaccine company. Pfizer has made inroads into the Russian health care system with a discount-card system in Russia Sanofi Aventis has purchased Medley, Brazil’s third-largest pharmaceutical company. GSK and Lilly have also announced anticipated doubling their revenue in emerging markets by 2015.
