Detailed Implementation Review (DIR)

 


     

WHAT IS A DETAILED IMPLEMENTATION REVIEW?


The Detailed Implementation Review (DIR) is a proactive diagnostic tool developed by INT in 2001 to evaluate Bank-financed projects for indicators of fraud and corruption and the robustness of the Bank Group’s control mechanisms to prevent, detect, and respond to them.

Using forensic accounting and fraud investigation techniques, a DIR examines a project’s procurement and implementation processes for indicators of fraud and corruption. It seeks to determine how, and to what extent, fraud and corruption may be present and thereby adversely affect the procurement of the project’s essential goods, works, and services and the successful completion of project implementation.

By bringing to light possible indicators of the diverse schemes through which projects can become corrupted, such reviews suggest areas where risks may be mitigated.
