Based on a literature review, the article analyses corruption contextually and examines the important role proper records and information management can play in fighting corruption. In particular, it proposes specific steps that may be taken to ensure good records and information management in order to minimise the problem. The article concludes that corruption is a "disease" that needs a "vaccine" called effective records and information management (RIM), and recommends key parameters to consider so that RIM can significantly aid in the fight against corruption.
