Following Discussions with the Corporate Crime Advisory Group

This memorandum provides guidance as to how prosecutors should ensure individual and corporate accountability, including through evaluation of a corporation’s history of misconduct; self-disclosure, and cooperation.

I Guidance on Individual Accountability
The Department’s first priority in corporate criminal matters is to hold accountable the individuals who commit and profit from corporate crime.

IA. Timely Disclosures and Prioritization of Individual Investigations
To be eligible for any cooperation credit, corporations must disclose to the Department all relevant, non-privileged facts about individual misconduct.

Therefore, to receive full cooperation credit, corporations must produce on a timely basis all relevant, non-privileged facts and evidence about individual misconduct such that prosecutors have the opportunity to effectively investigate and seek criminal charges against culpable individuals.
