Office of Institutional Integrity Annual Report 2012
Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)
This report provides an overview of the IDB-Group Sanctions System activities and findings during 2012. The Office of Institutional Integrity has two primary mandates: investigation and prevention of Prohibited Practices in IDB Group-financed activities. To fulfill these equally important goals, OII's internal structure incorporates an investigative and a preventive team. The first is responsible for investigating allegations and presenting cases before the adjudicative bodies of the Sanctions System. The second is responsible for designing tools and training materials and providing advice to Operational Divisions within the IDB Group to help identify and mitigate integrity and related reputational risks. Both teams conduct training activities for IDB staff and engage in outreach with stakeholders outside the IDB Group.
