Construction industry is corrupt or is it; looking at the mentioned industry we see that it is the most booming industry. The sector role in economic development is undeniable for things like housing, roads, hospitals, school and most utility networks
The impact of corruption goes beyond bribe payment to poor quality construction of infrastructure with low economic returns alongside low funding for maintenance and the major impact of corruption is felt Construction involve large ,complex ,non-standard activities in which quality can be very hard to assess. Project can involve a multitude of players the client, consultant engineer and architect and main contractor. The large construction projects frequently attract international contractors although much of the works is subcontracted to local firms. Where we have good units for the cost for the price of construction, it appears that they are sometimes correlated with available general corruption measures An economic approach to corruption suggests an additional insight there can be worse things than a bribe payment One way to avoid corruption in competitive bid processes for example, would be to sole source all contract to a single firm but this would be unlikely to improve overall development outcomes .This can be very poorly illustrated by evidence from construction indeed, our empirical knowledge about the causes of high corruption in the sector is extremely limited. All we can say some certainty is that more wealthy countries appear to have less corrupt contracting permitting and licensing procedures on average, but even here there is significant variation between countries at similar income.
Governments are and will remain major regulators of infrastructure services and consumers of construction services. Reducing unnecessary activities of the government in the sector may play a role in controlling corruption, but improving governance will remain central to any effort to reduce the development impact of corruption in construction industry. Our knowledge- base regarding effective interventions to reduce corruption is limited, in considerable part because the act is usually well hidden(责任编辑：BUG)
