International Anticorruption and Good Governance Act

Congress passed the International Anticorruption and Good Governance Act of 2000 (IAGGA) (Public Law 106-309) on October 5, 2000. The purpose of this legislation is "to ensure that United States assistance programs promote good governance by assisting other countries to combat corruption throughout society and to improve transparency and accountability at all levels of government and throughout the private sector."

The IAGGA further requires the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of Commerce and the Administrator of the Agency for International Development, to prepare a report to Congress that surveys U.S. Government diplomatic and programmatic anticorruption efforts, as well as host government efforts, in priority countries. The report, due biennially, is to focus on activities of the previous year, while touching upon potential future activities in this area.
