On 14th August, a post on the FCPA Blog reported that Beijing Jingold Construction Co., Ltd (BJC) is ineligible to participate in World Bank-financed projects during a 15-month debarment imposed for a “fraudulent practice” involving a project in Samoa. The World Bank said that BJC had a history of contract non-performance at the time of bidding, but knowingly misrepresented this fact when it bid on a contract to provide airport infrastructure. The $38 million World Bank funded project involved was designed to improve operational safety and oversight of international air transport and associated infrastructure in Samoa, and BJC did not win the contract.
