BII Overview

Doing business with integrity is good for business


Access practical support for companies to help prevent bribery and corruption when doing business in emerging markets


The Business Integrity Initiative (BII) is a joint initiative of the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) and the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) that is being run by the British Business Association of Kenya / British Chamber of Commerce of Kenya (BBAK-BCCK). It is mainly targeted at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) because smaller businesses tend to be more vulnerable to bribery and corruption abroad, face specific challenges when exporting and need tailored support.

The current service offer to businesses is managed by the Business Integrity Hub (bih@dfid.gov.uk), which consists of 2 civil servants based in DFID London:
  • Online guidance for exporters highlighting integrity risks to be aware of when doing business abroad and signposting to resources
  • Business Integrity Consultancy Service - up to 5 days of match-funded, tailored guidance from a consultant on topics ranging from compliance with the law, prevention and risk mitigation, to collective action and human rights
  • Market and sector specific guidance for Kenya, Pakistan and Mexico - delivered through three country pilots to test how Her Majesty Government (HMG) can effectively deliver business integrity support through UK missions (March 2019 to March 2020) read more.

The principal objectives of the project are to:
  • Provide international companies looking to do or currently doing business in Kenya with practical information and guidance on navigating integrity challenges
  • Promote improvements to local market conditions through dialogue with Kenyan authorities based on the insights from businesses
  • Help companies to integrate best practices for managing integrity issues in Kenya into their strategies and operations
  • Establish evidence for what types of possible support are most beneficial for organizations interested in the Kenya market, which can be provided by the UK through the British High Commission in Kenya

The above objectives will be accomplished through the following activities:
  • A robust Peer-Peer Network
  • Business Integrity E-Learning Module 
  • Face to Face training
  • International Webinar 
  • Public-Private forum
