MIGA’s Board

A Council of Governors and a Board of Directors, representing 182 member countries, guide MIGA’s programs and activities. Each country appoints one governor and one alternate. MIGA’s corporate powers are vested in the Council of Governors, which delegates most of its powers to a Board of 25 Directors. Voting power is weighted according to the share of capital that each Director represents. MIGA’s Board resides in the World Bank Group headquarters in Washington, D.C., and meets regularly to review and decide on investment guarantee projects and oversee general management policies.

Integrity Vice Presidency (INT)

An independent unit within the World Bank Group, the Integrity Vice Presidency (INT) investigates and pursues sanctions related to allegations of fraud, corruption, collusion, coercion, and obstruction in World Bank Group financed projects, as well as fraud and corruption by Bank Group staff and vendors. In addition, through its Integrity Compliance Office, INT engages with parties toward meeting their conditions for release from sanction. INT shares its investigative insights across the institution to help mitigate fraud and corruption risk in projects, playing a fundamental role in supporting the Bank Group’s fiduciary responsibility for the development resources it manages.
