Enhancing Global Commerce Through Transparency and
The Case for Transparency and
Nations that establish fairness, transparency and
accountability initiatives and a "transparency culture" encourage international investment while assuring
citizens of fair value for their resources and the protection of their environment. Global companies
know that the risks of their potential investments are much lower when fairness, transparency and
accountability are well established. Companies that know that they will be treated fairly in a
competitive environment and will be able to operate according to consistent, fair practices are more likely
to consider investments, especially in riskier conflict and post-conflict
"Our company's Board of Directors would never have approved bidding for this oil
and gas tender had it not been for The Marx Group's presence in the tender process,"

The Marx Group transparency model is
unique in its integrated, process-based approach. For example, when applied to a natural resource tender
such as oil shown in the Figure below, the model links all tender participants, the legal and regulatory
tender framework, and all tender processes, controls and accountability -- and spans tender process
development, implementation and validation.
