World Bank Announces Two Negotiated Resolution Agreements

January 31, 2017

WASHINGTON, January 31, 2017— The World Bank Group this month announced the debarment of XL Management Services Limited for 15 months. The company submitted a false experience claim, supported by a false subcontract award letter, in its bid for a contract under the World Bank-financed Second Rural Access and Mobility Project in Nigeria.

The World Bank also debarred Tianjin Huashui Tap Water Construction Co., Ltd. and its affiliates for 15-months for submitting false documents and misrepresenting previous experience while bidding for a contract under the World Bank-financed Anhui Xuancheng Infrastructure for Industry Relocation Project in China.

The aforementioned sanctions are part of Negotiated Resolution Agreements and qualify for cross-debarment by other MDBs under the Agreement of Mutual Recognition of Debarments that was signed on April 9, 2010.
