On June 18, 2019, the World Bank’s Chief Suspension and Debarment Officer (the “SDO”) imposed a three-year debarment with conditional release on Emmyways Engineering/Construction Limited (“Emmyways”) pursuant to a Notice of Uncontested Sanctions Proceedings in Sanctions Case No. 608.
The specific accusation made by the Integrity Vice Presidency in the case was that Emmyways engaged in a fraudulent practice by misrepresenting its prior experience in its bid for a contract to construct facilities in Ugandan primary schools under the Uganda Teacher and School Effectiveness Project.
Emmyways did not submit an Explanation to the SDO in accordance with the Bank Procedure: Sanctions Proceedings and Settlements in Bank Financed Projects (the “Sanctions Procedures”).
Emmyways also did not submit a Response to the World Bank Group Sanctions Board within the period specified in the Sanctions Procedures. Accordingly, the sanction recommended by the SDO is deemed uncontested and has entered into force as of June 18, 2019.
