    The global construction industry is worth over US$3.2 trillion per annum (Sohail and Cavil, 2009). ASCE (2011) estimates that corruption account for over US$500 of annual global construction costs. It means that corruption is not only a waste but is contrary to all tenets of projects management and especially Lean Thinking.
