Independent Advisory Board (IAB) for issues relating to functioning of the World Bank Group's Department of Institutional Integrity (INT) (English)

The World Bank Group (WBG) is implementing a Governance and Anti-Corruption Strategy (GAC) which outlines a comprehensive approach to addressing issues of governance that are crucial to the WBG's efforts to promote economic growth and alleviate poverty in developing countries. A key element in the GAC is the need to maintain program integrity in the WBG's own operations to ensure the effective use of the funds it disburses. In addressing issues of program integrity, the Department of Institutional Integrity (INT) serves as the institutional focal point for the investigation and management of allegations of fraud, corruption, collusion, coercion and obstruction in the WBG and in WBG-supported activities. With a direct reporting line to the President and a concurrent responsibility to report to the Board of Executive Directors through the Audit Committee, INT has been mandated to operate in an atmosphere free of improper influence or even the perception of improper influence as well as to act in a fair and professional manner while ensuring that its procedures are consistent with externally recognized practices for conducting investigations in international organizations. The Independent Advisory Board (IAB) has been established to help protect the independence and strengthen the accountability of INT. It provides advice on INT- related issues to the President, the Audit Committee (on behalf of the Executive Directors) and the Vice President of INT. It is intended to complement and strengthen existing governance structures and responsibilities within the WBG, including the respective roles of the President and the Audit Committee, as well as enhance the credibility of WBG efforts on fighting corruption, both inside and outside the WBG.
