As part of the World Bank Group (WBG), the Integrity Vice Presidency (INT) shares in the WBG’s overall mission in alleviating poverty and achieving a shared and sustainable prosperity in client countries. INT’s fundamental role within the WBG is to help detect, prevent, and deter fraud and corruption in the use of the WBG’s financial resources, so that those resources are used effectively to benefit the poor people that they are intended to reach. In contributing to the WBG’s overall mission, INT works closely with other stakeholders across the WBG to:
• Help detect, prevent, and deter fraud and corruption in WBG-supported projects and activities by:
• Professionally investigating allegations of fraud, corruption, collusion, coercion, or obstruction (the WBG-sanctionable practices) in WBG activities;
• Help client countries to fight fraud and corruption by:
• Referring investigative findings to the investigative and enforcement authorities in those countries and working with authorities, as requested, to follow-up and take action;
• Enforce the highest standards of professional integrity and ethical behavior among WBG staff and corporate vendors by:
• Investigating allegations of staff misconduct involving significant fraud and corruption;
INT’s work contributes directly to achieving the shared prosperity/poverty reduction mission of the WBG. Reducing fraud and corruption in WBG projects helps to ensure that WBG funds are used for their intended purposes: to alleviate poverty and to increase prosperity and stability in our borrowing countries. Working with others in international development institutions, INT’s principal goal is to measurably minimize development assistance funds lost to fraud, corruption and abuse and increase the quality and results of development efforts. Results are reported in an annual report that contains aggregated data, outcomes, and generic descriptions of significant cases. To ensure its independence, INT’s Vice President (VP) reports directly to the President of the World Bank.
