Issuance of Sanctions Board Decision No. 55

Pursuant to Sanctions Board Decision No. 55, the Sanctions Board imposes a six-month debarment on the Respondent in Sanctions Case No. 159 (the “Respondent”) for engaging in fraudulent practices by submitting forged performance certificates in support of its bid under a Bank-financed project. The Sanctions Board found the Respondent liable for the acts of its staff under the doctrine of respondeat superior, taking into account, inter alia, the absence of evidence showing that the Respondent put in place any training, supervision, or control measures prior to the misconduct at issue that would be sufficient to prevent or detect the type of fraud found in this case.​
