Integrity compliance is increasingly a major issue for the investor and business community. The World Bank Group and related multilateral financial institutions (MFIs) have strict integrity compliance and governance requirements which place obligations on those in receipt of funds.
A robust integrity compliance programme must address the following risks:
- Bribery and corruption
- Collusion and coercion
- Conflicts of interest
- Obstructive practices
The penalties for an inadequate programme are high including debarment, cross-debarment, reputational damage, restricted access to finance and increased financing costs.
