Corruption is a problem in case of organization management and implementation of development projects. The main reason behind corruption in Bangladesh is the lack of proper administrative functioning of the agencies entrusted to control corruption. Bribery is the most common type of corruption in Bangladesh, which generates malpractices in administrative management. When corruption becomes deep and wide, it can lead to a sense of despair and disempowerment among the staff of any organization. It is a major impediment to any development process. Bribery, as a form of corruption, weakens the key systems of an organization. Bribery erodes peoples’ trust in organizations and breeds injustice. Since its inception, COD has been giving highest priority to avoid providing and receiving bribery in any form. COD follows ‘Zero Tolerance’ policy towards any kind of corruption.
