Data Integrity in Production Process of the Doing Business Report : Assurance Review (English)

The Doing Business (DB) Report is one of the flagship reports published by the Bank annually. The report is data intensive requiring focused attention on data integrity to maintain the credibility of the report. In June 2020, the data irregularities in the Doing Business 18 and Doing Business 20 reports were reported to the current Development Economics Vice Presidency (DEC) management by members of the DB team. In response, DEC management initiated several actions to address these concerns. Management and the Board requested Group Internal Audit (GIA) to review the processes for data collection and the controls to safeguard data integrity for the DB Report. The objective of this assurance review was to assess the design adequacy and operating effectiveness of the governance, risk management and controls over data integrity in the end-to-end production process of the DB Report. This assurance review covers the production cycle of DB18-DB21.
