This paper reviews efforts by the South African government to reduce corruption in its bureaucracy. It is based on a research study that covered the period 1994-2009, corresponding with the country's transition to a non-racial democracy. The objective of the research was to identify and evaluate anti-corruption measures targeting South Africa's public service. While this paper draws on the findings of this study, its main aim is to consider the import of these observations on the wider institutional challenge of combating corruption in the government.
