How corruption allegations are investigated

The Office of Institutional Integrity (OII) investigates possible cases of fraud, corruption and other Prohibited Practices committed by firms or individuals. In the assessment of allegations and handling of investigations OII follows internal guidelines, consistent with the international guidelines and principles to conduct investigations adopted by the International Financial Institutions Anti-Corruption Task Force in September 2006 and the IDB Group’s Sanctions Procedures.

If OII concludes that the evidence gathered through an investigation is sufficient to prove that a firm or an individual has committed a Prohibited Practice, OII will prepare a statement of charges and submit it to the Case Officer. The standard to determine the sufficiency of the evidence is that of the preponderance of the evidence, this is, whether it is more likely than not that a Prohibited Practice took place.
