World Bank Debarment of Australian Subsidiary

The World Bank Group debarred Kellogg Brown & Root Pty Ltd (KBR Pty) for a period of two years with conditional release following an investigation by the Bank’s Integrity Vice Presidency (INT) into violations of the Consultant’s Guidelines under a Bank-financed water supply project in Vietnam. KBR Pty, an Australian subsidiary of KBR, Inc., misrepresented the availability of key consultants during contract negotiation and execution, which resulted in KBR Pty being awarded the contract and led to delays in contract execution. Under the terms of the agreement KBR Inc. will also implement remedial measures to its corporate compliance program to comply with the World Bank Compliance standards. KBR Pty cannot be awarded a contract or otherwise participate in new activities under World Bank Group-financed or executed projects during the debarment period.
