ASUNCION, Paraguay (AP) The CONMEBOL soccer body will begin publishing the salary of its president and executive council members after being plunged into crisis by the FIFA bribery scandal.

The South American governing body published the anti-corruption measures Wednesday. They also include the creation of a new post for an independent expert overseeing its implementation.

CONMEBOL also wants to run background checks on potential commercial partners, and improve the drafting of contracts so they can include anti-corruption clauses. Annual audit reports will also be published on CONMEBOL'S site.
