Issuance of Sanctions Board Decision No. 56

Pursuant to Sanctions Board Decision No. 56, the Sanctions Board imposes a one-year debarment with conditional release on the Respondent Consultant and on the Respondent Affiliated Firm. The Sanctions Board finds that it is more likely than not that the respondents engaged in fraudulent practices by failing to make required disclosures in support of a proposal for, and during the implementation of, a Bank-financed contract, and submitting false reimbursement claims under the same. The decision provides that each of the respondents may be released from ineligibility after one year only if it has (a) adopted and implemented an effective integrity compliance program in a manner satisfactory to the World Bank and (b) with respect to Respondent Consultant, cooperated with the World Bank Group’s Integrity Vice Presidency (“INT”) by providing the results of all internal investigations relating to the sanctionable practices in this case.
