In the context of promoting integrity and good governance in the region, the IDB Group is committed to the highest integrity standards in all its operations. In alignment with this commitment, the IDB Group has an extensive set of policies, best practices, and specialized mechanisms to reinforce integrity best practices and deter Prohibited Practices such as fraud and corruption in all IDB-Group financed projects.
A key component of the deterrence of Prohibited Practices is the IDB Group’s Sanctions System, composed of the Office of Institutional Integrity (OII), the Sanctions Officer (SO), and the Sanctions Committee (SNC). Guided by the Uniform Framework for Preventing and Combating Fraud and Corruption adopted by the International Financial Institutions Anti-Corruption Task Force and the IDB Group’s Sanctions Procedures, the three components of the Sanctions System form a robust mechanism to address Prohibited Practices in IDB Group-financed activities through transparent investigations and two-tier adjudication processes that can result in administrative public sanctions.
