Office of Institutional Integrity



Laura Profeta

Chief, Office of Institutional Integrity

The Office of Institutional Integrity (OII) plays a key role in the IDB Group’s integrity efforts. OII as an integral part of the Sanctions System is responsible for investigating allegations of fraud and corruption in IDB Group-financed activities, and taking efforts to prevent them. Annually, OII and the Sanctions System report their activities in their annual report (See Key Documents).

In its investigations, OII follows the Principles and Guidelines for Investigations, incorporated in the Uniform Framework for Preventing and Combating Fraud and Corruption adopted by the International Financial Institutions Anti-Corruption Task Force (See Key Documents).

OII’s prevention activities aim to identify, assess and mitigate integrity and reputational risks on IDB Group-financed activities. To this end, OII extracts lessons learned from investigations and conducts  training activities to improve the IDB Group’s knowledge regarding identification of integrity risk or prohibited practices. OII also develops and enforces policies and mechanisms to strengthen the overall integrity of IDB Group-financed activities.

The Office reports its ongoing activities and significant findings to the Bank’s senior management and the Audit Committee of the Board of Executive Directors.
