This case, jointly developed by the Kennedy School and the National University of Singapore, portrays the dilemma of a Singaporean public official who must choose whether to continue to make equipment purchases from a US company whose product is clearly the best of its kind but which has been indirectly implicated in an influence-buying scheme in California. The case intertwines the facts of the company's behavior with a description of the strong anti-corruption value system of Singapore and the political pitfalls potentially associated with a link to a corrupt firm.
