The corrupt are clever and adaptable. Thus, anti-corruption efforts must continuously adjust in order to ensure that efficiency and integrity in government is maintained. Two investigative bodies, New York City’s Department of Investigations (DOI) and Singapore’s Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB), embody both the innovation and persistence necessary to serve as watchdogs for their respective communities.
