The purpose of this essay was to reflect on corruption in state contracting during the Covid-19 pandemic, under a special approach to the legal principles set forth in the General Statute of Public Contracting (Law 80 of 1993) and in article 209 of the Political Constitution (principles of the administrative function). To meet this objective, firstly, the concept of corruption was approached from a multidisciplinary perspective, which reflects this phenomenon as a practice that affects both moral values and social norms established in the legal system. Second, the phases of the contractual process in which acts of corruption are usually committed were analyzed. Finally, some events reported to the Comptroller's Office and the Attorney General's Office committed during the Covid-19 pandemic were analyzed, highlighting the affected legal principles for each one.
