Sanction imposed pursuant to Section 8.3 of the Sanctions Procedures.
The Office of Institutional Integrity submitted a Statement of Charges and Evidence against a principal respondent firm for allegedly engaging in collusive and obstructive practices related to the Support for Haiti Transportation Sector Program (“Program”). The Sanctions Officer (“SO”) determined that it is more likely than not that the principal respondent firm engaged in collusive and obstructive practices. As a result, the SO imposed a sanction of debarment for a period of seven (7) years during which time the principal respondent firm 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 individual that exercised control over the sanctioned principal respondent firm.
