Among the agencies are Australia Federal Police, the Global Fund, United States Federal Trade Commission, the World Bank, African Development Bank, West Australian Police, Higher Authority against Corruption and Related Offences (HALCIA) Niger Republic, British Serious Fraud Office, Economic Crimes Network (New Zealand) and the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
