The firms and individuals listed below have been sanctioned for having engaged in fraudulent, corrupt, collusive, coercive or obstructive practices (collectively, Prohibited Practices), in violation of the IDB Group’s Sanctions Procedures and anti-corruption policies.  Sanctions are meant to prevent and deter Prohibited Practices in IDB Group-financed activities. Such sanctions are imposed as a result of: 

  • Determinations by the Sanctions Officer and Decisions of the Sanctions Committee of the IDB Group; 
  • Negotiated Resolution Agreements entered between the Bank Group and companies or individuals as a result of investigations undertaken by OII; or 
  • Cross debarment in accordance with the Agreement for Mutual Enforcement of Debarment Decisions dated 9 April 2010, which, as of 11 July 2012, has been made effective by the African Development Bank, Asian Development Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Inter-American Development Bank, and World Bank. 

In accordance with the IDB Group’s Sanctions Procedures, the Sanctions Officer and Sanctions Committee may impose any sanction that it deems to be appropriate under the circumstances, including but not limited to reprimand, debarment, conditional non-debarment, and conditions on future contracting. Debarred firms or individuals are ineligible to be awarded and participate in any IDB financed contract for the periods indicated.  Ineligibility may extend to any firm or individual who directly or indirectly controls the debarred firm or any firm which the debarred firm directly or indirectly controls. In the case of a debarred individual, ineligibility may extend to any firm which the debarred individual directly or indirectly controls.
