ADB imposes sanctions on parties that have engaged in fraudulent, corrupt, coercive, collusive, obstructive practices, or other integrity violations.
ADB may cross debar parties that have been debarred by any of the other participating institutions in accordance with the Cross Debarment Agreement, and the other participating institutions may cross debar parties that ADB has publicly debarred.
Debarred entities are ineligible to participate in ADB-financed, administered or supported activities. A debarred firm’s ineligibility extends to all employees and officers of a firm, and may extend to other principals and contractual employees of the firm. Debarred individuals may not participate in ADB-related activity, as individuals or through nomination by an eligible firm, unless they have completely disassociated themselves with an ineligible firm.
