Anticorruption and Integrity
In the Spotlight
This report presents findings from a project procurement-related review (PPRR) of a road improvement project in Tajikistan by ADB's Office of Anticorruption and Integrity.
Through its investigative, advisory, knowledge-sharing, and sanctioning mandates, the OAI serves as the focal point of the ADB's anticorruption efforts to ensure that project funds are not diverted from their intended activities and beneficiaries.
ADB's Office of Anticorruption and Integrity sanctioned 90 companies and individuals for integrity violations in 2015, more than double the 40 sanctioned the previous year, reflecting expanded efforts to report corrupt activities.
The follow-up review report presents the results of OAI’s assessment and validation of the actions taken by the executing agency to implement PPRR recommendations.
Fighting Fraud and Corruption in ADB Projects
The Office of Anticorruption and Integrity (OAI) is the designated focal point of contact for allegations of fraud or corruption pertaining to ADB-related activities or staff members.
OAI’s mandate is underpinned by ADB’s zero tolerance for corruption. It is aligned with ADB’s broader commitment to combat corruption and improve governance as a core strategic objective of ADB Strategy 2020, and the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness of 2005—to which ADB is a signatory—in support of effective, transparent, and accountable aid.
In carrying out OAI’s activities, the head and authorized staff members have unrestricted access to (and may have temporary possession or control of) information and records relating to all ADB activities, personnel, and physical property.
