Annual Integrity Report FY 2007

The World Bank's third Integrity Report, covering fiscal year 2007, was issued on December 18, 2008

"Corruption is a cancer that steals from the poor, eats away at governance and moral fiber, and destroys trust. The challenge for the World Bank is how best to diagnose, determine, and clean out corruption in concert with developing and developed countries."

 - Robert B. Zoellick, President, World Bank Group

The World Bank's second Integrity Report, covering fiscal years 2005 and 2006, was issued on 6 February, 2007.

"When we find that scarce development dollars have been wrongly diverted from their intended purpose of benefiting the poor, we have a responsibility to take action.  [The Integrity Department's] work helps us to fulfill this obligation to the poor, who are our ultimate clients, by detecting and deterring fraud and corruption, and by working with others across the Bank to mitigate risks in future operations."
