This study examined the efficacy of anticorruption measures for extirpating the prevalence of corrupt practices in infrastructure procurement in developing countries. The study employed the fuzzy synthetic evaluation (FSE) technique to assess 62 responses from practitioners involved in the procurement and delivery of infrastructure projects. The probing measures were identified to be the highest-ranked construct, followed by the managerial measures. The remaining constructs with their variables were revealed to be moderately effective. The study has revealed the level of effectiveness of existing anticorruption measures that are widely applied to check, thwart, and extirpate corrupt practices in the procurement and delivery of infrastructure projects. This study theoretically contributes to the body of knowledge on corruption in infrastructure procurement by evaluating the effectiveness of anticorruption measures. Practically, this study provides useful information for project parties, policy makers, anticorruption institutions, and researchers toward the reinforcement of the existing measures for the expurgation of corrupt practices in infrastructure projects' procurement, delivery, and management.
