Issuance of Sanctions Board Decision No. 123

Pursuant to Sanctions Board Decision No. 123 issued in Sanctions Case No. 640, the Sanctions Board imposes a sanction of debarment with conditional release after a minimum of three years on LTD Dagi (the “Respondent”).

This sanction is imposed on the Respondent for fraudulent practices as defined in Paragraph 1.16(a)(ii) of the World Bank’s Guidelines: Procurement of Goods, Works, and Non-consulting Services under IBRD Loans and IDA Credits and Grants by World Bank Borrowers (January 2011), and Paragraph 1.16(a)(ii) of the World Bank’s Guidelines: Procurement of Goods, Works, and Non-consulting Services under IBRD Loans and IDA Credits and Grants by World Bank Borrowers (January 2011, revised July 2014).

Capsule Summary of Findings:

The Respondent was found liable for engaging in fraudulent practices by failing to disclose required information in two bids on Bank-financed contracts. The Sanctions Board found the evidence sufficient to support a finding that the Respondent’s staff acted knowingly, and that the fraudulent conduct served to improve the Respondent’s chances of winning the Bank-financed contracts. In selecting the appropriate sanction for the Respondent, the Sanctions Board took into account all relevant aggravating and mitigating factors. Full discussion of the facts, parties’ contentions, and the Sanctions Board’s analysis can be found in the published decision.
