Sanction imposed pursuant to Section 8.3 of the Sanctions Procedures.
The Office of Institutional Integrity submitted a Statement of Charges and Evidence against an Individual Respondent for allegedly engaging in fraudulent and corrupt practices related to the Innovation in School Infrastructure Program. The Sanctions Officer (“SO”) determined that it is more likely than not that the Individual Respondent engaged in prohibited practices. As a result, the SO imposed a sanction of debarment for a period of seven (7) years, during which time the Individual Respondent will be ineligible to participate or be awarded contracts for projects or activities financed by the Bank Group. In accordance with Section 8.3 of the Sanctions Procedures, the sanction was extended to an entity controlled by the sanctioned Individual Respondent.
