The Integrity Learning Series: ADB Sanctions – Debarments and Suspensions
What are ADB sanctions including temporary suspensions and debarments? How does a firm or individual get debarred or temporarily suspended and what are the consequences? Why is your role in ADB’s sanctions screening crucial to fight corruption? How do you get access to and use ADB’s Complete Sanctions List?
The Office of Anticorruption and Integrity (OAI), in partnership with Procurement, Portfolio and Financial Management Department (PPFD) hosted a knowledge session for Executing and Implementing Agencies (EAs and IAs). The session featured speakers from OAI and PPFD and discussed ADB sanctions, shared lessons learned, and demonstrated how to get access to and scrutinize ADB’s Complete Sanctions List and United Nations Security Council sanctions checks.
This knowledge session is part of the OAI Integrity Learning Series (ILS) which is designed to increase awareness of ADB’s Anticorruption framework, understand sector specific corruption and integrity risks, and to build the capacity including the knowledge of anticorruption and integrity prevention and detection within the EAs/IAs and other stakeholders of ADB-funded or administered projects. The 2-hour session was attended by over 260 participants from more than 35 countries, with simultaneous translation into 7 languages.
