Transnational organized crime threatens democracy. Supporting the capacity of national and local institutions to prevent and mitigate the nexus between organized crime and democratic politics is an important part of fighting against these threats.

The IntegriTAS Threat Assessment System is a multipurpose data-driven software application that helps national and local institutions identify the threats that organized crime poses to politics. Focusing on the threat— instead of seeking to establish the existence of links between organized crime and politics, or their impact—allows users to map and focus on the factors that contribute to corruption, and to identify strategies to prevent or mitigate the threat.

This Guide describes the process of implementing IntegriTAS and includes a description of the system’s structure and its implementation stages. It complements two other Guides: the IntegriTAS Factors Guide and the IntegriTAS Prevention and Mitigation Guide. The IntegriTAS software is also accompanied by a User Manual.
