Integrity and Anti-Corruption Department of the AfDB Group Standard Operating Procedures
In February 2006, the leaders of International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and the African Development Bank agreed to establish a Joint International Financial Institutions AntiCorruption Task Force to work towards a consistent and harmonised approach to combat corruption in the IFI financed operations. This led to the adoption of the Uniform Framework for Preventing and Combating Fraud and Corruption in September 2006. Consequently, these IFIs endorsed a common set of principles for investigations of ‘Sanctionable Practices’ conducted by them. The principles are guidelines and are adapted in line with each organisation’s policies, rules, regulations, privileges and immunities.
