The White House states the following

On December 6, 2021, President Biden issued the first United States Strategy on Countering Corruption to meet the grave threat transnational corruption poses to U.S. national security. The Strategy resulted from an interagency study the President mandated when he made combating corruption a core U.S. priority in his first National Security Study Memorandum. Organized in five pillars, the Strategy establishes specific lines of work to support people and institutions that fight corruption, direct action against corrupt actors, and impede corrupt actors’ abuse of our financial system. Some of the many steps taken under the Strategy are outlined below.

Pillar One: Modernizing, Coordinating, and Resourcing U.S. Efforts to Fight Corruption
Pillar Two: Curbing Illicit Finance
Pillar Three: Holding Corrupt Actors Accountable
Pillar Four: Preserving and Strengthening the Multilateral Anti-Corruption Architecture
Pillar Five: Improving Diplomatic Engagement and Leveraging Foreign Assistance
