Sanctions Officer Notifications
All Notices of Administrative Action (NAA) issued by the Sanctions Officer to investigated parties are delivered by certified mail or courier services. Proof of delivery is required in all cases.

Constructive Notice refers to the presumption that an investigated party (the Respondent) has knowledge of the issuance of a NAA by virtue of posting a Public Notice on this website.
The Sanctions Officer will accomplish delivery through Constructive Notice if:
- After reasonable efforts, the Sanctions Officer cannot deliver the NAA to a Respondent or;
- The Sanctions Officer concludes that the Respondent is avoiding delivery.
Constructive Notice shall occur in accordance with the Protocol for the Delivery of Notices of Administrative Action in Relation to the Inter-American Development Bank Group’s (Protocol for the Delivery of Notices)
