Independent panel review of the World Bank Group Department of Institutional Integrity (English)

In February 2007, the World Bank Group President Paul Wolfowitz, in consultation with the Board of Executive Directors, announced the formation of an independent panel of experts to review the operations of the Department of Institutional Integrity (INT). Its mandate has been to review the work of INT and place it in the context of the World Bank Group's Governance and Anticorruption (GAC) strategy. The Panel's recommendations in this report are forward looking. They are based on analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of INT's operations, internal organization, and its working relationships with other parts of the Bank. The full Panel or one or more of its members has interviewed 117 individuals from the Bank's staff and others with relevant experience and expertise. The Panel's staff has met with the balance of a total of 273 persons who were interviewed in connection with this report. The Panel's findings are based in large part on information received from interviews, which were conducted on a confidential basis; therefore, attributions are not made in this Report. The Panel's preliminary recommendations were discussed with a special review group of experts familiar with development and corruption issues and are listed in Annex C of this report.
