Office of Institutional Integrity Annual Report 2005

Jan 2006
In 2005, major steps were taken to create a harmonized approach to combat fraud and corruption within the multilateral development banks and the community of international organizations. The Office of Institutional Integrity has also significantly expanded its outreach capacity, increasing efforts to educate our staff as well as employees at executing agencies, and firms and consultants who do business with the Bank group on its anti-corruption initiatives. The results of OII's efforts and the growing trust within the Bank for the office's work, as summarized in this report, demonstrate the Bank's commitment to integrity, implementation of an effective anti-corruption program, and leadership within the broader multilateral development bank community on this fundamental subject. This report provides the Bank and the public with an overview of OII's activities and findings during 2005.
