The Advocacy Center

Requesting Assistance:

The Advocacy Questionnaire and
The Anti-Bribery Agreement

A company interested in receiving U.S. Government advocacy assistance must first file an Advocacy Questionnaire and Anti-Bribery Agreement with the Advocacy Center. The questionnaire is the Advocacy Center's formal way for gathering information. It provides an in-depth look at the specifics of the project and outlines what type of assistance is being requested. Along with the questionnaire, the company must complete the Anti-Bribery Agreement, certifying that neither the company nor its affiliates will engage in bribery of foreign officials. Both documents must be signed by an officer of the requesting company and cosigned by an officer of the "Bidder of Record" -- if not the requesting company.


These documents are provided below. The completed and signed Advocacy Questionnaire and Anti-Bribery Agreement may be faxed back to the Advocacy Center at (202) 482-3508 or (202) 501-2895. A sample questionnaire and agreement is provided to use as a guide.
