SNC Blacklisted from bidding on World Bank Global Projects
In September 2013, it was reported that SNC Lavalin and its affiliates represent 115 of the 117 Canadian companies there were part of 250 total companies blacklisted from bidding on the World Bank's global projects. “As it stands today, the World Bank debarment list includes a high number of Canadian companies, the majority of which are affiliates to SNC Lavalin Inc.,” said the bank’s manager of investigations, James David Fielder. The companies were debarred due to an investigation relating to the Padma Bridge project in Bangladesh where World Bank investigators worked with RCMP officers to make a collective action against corruption.
