Bribery of Foreign Government Officials – World Bank Debarment

The World Bank Group debarred Louis Berger Group (LBG) for one year for engaging in corrupt practices under two Bank-financed projects in Vietnam. The Bank also imposed a one-year conditional non-debarment on Berger Group Holdings (BGH), LBG’s corporate parent. Under two World Bank-financed projects, the Third Rural Transport and Da Nang Priority Infrastructure Investment Projects, the company made corrupt payments to government officials. In addition, BGH failed to effectively supervise LBG. Under the terms of the sanctions, LBG and BGH were required to take appropriate remedial measures and implement an effective integrity compliance program consistent with World Bank guidelines.
