TI stands by graft report, denies ‘redo’

CLEAR NO:The transparency watchdog said it would not be ‘redoing’ the survey on corruption in Taiwan, but that it would help its local office do a new one ‘for reference’

“According to WIN/GIA, [it was because] the project manager responsible for the survey in 2010 moved from SSI to Jisibar,” the TI said.

The TI said it was not involved in the assignment of fieldwork to affiliates or to any subcontracting arrangements made by the WIN/GIA affiliate.

Public opinion survey data can vary over time, depending on current events and the degree of public exposure to these events, so fluctuation in the results of such survey data from one year to the next is to be expected, the TI said.

While stating it has full confidence in the results of the survey, including those for Taiwan,TI said it hoped to explore the issue in more detail together with TICT to better understand people’s experiences with bribery in Taiwan through complementary research because the difference in the results of the bribery question between the 2010 and this year’s survey is substantial.
