This study discusses the methodological and applied problems of increasing the effectiveness of the anti-corruption management process. An analysis of the essence and forms of corruption, as well as their negative impacts on the socioeconomic development of the society is offered.

To increase the effectiveness of anti-corruption problem-solving and assess the decision-making process pertaining to management, a scenario analysis is proposed.

The analysis of basic multigraph models of anti-corruption management focuses on the construction industry, using functional symbolic graphs.

According to the results, it is more effective to look more broadly at the criminological problem of combating corruption by linking its solution to developments in the fields of economics, sociology, and psychology.

The current publication is considered a new approach to the development of specific measures to counter this type of crime.
