They may include any and all:

  4. introducers, facilitators or other third parties who may provide services for or on behalf of [insert organisation’s name] in any capacity

If an agent/intermediary bribes another person intending to obtain or retain business, or an advantage in the conduct of business for [insert organisation name], we will be guilty of an offence unless we can show we had adequate procedures designed to prevent bribery in place.
