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.
