An Independent Panel headed by former U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker was appointed by the World Bank in early 2007 to review the work of the Bank's then-Department of Institutional Integrity (INT). The Panel considered INT's work in the broader context of the Bank's new strategy adopted earlier in 2007 to help borrowing countries develop effective governance and anticorruption programs.
Established in September 2008, the Independent Advisory Board (IAB) helps protect the independence and strengthens the accountability of INT by giving advice on policies and procedures and on the department's interactions within the World Bank Group. It also provides advice to the World Bank Group President and the World Bank Group Audit Committee on the performance of INT.
