Blog: World Bank Posts Six Years of Enforcement Statistics

More than 200 firms and individuals have been debarred or otherwise sanctioned by the World Bank over misconduct tied to bank-financed projects in recent years, a new report said. The report was the broadest in scope that the institution has done on the topic of suspension and debarment. Only 14% of the related settlements and cases involved corruption, while 86% involved fraud, according to the report, which looked at enforcement between fiscal years 2008 and 2013.
