Prasanna, Sounds like a very productive meeting! I have posted a suggestion about another source of "big data" to fight fraud at: http://tm.durusau.net/?p=39152. While reading your report, it occurred to me that banks already collect the transfer information about funds from World Bank funding, from the arrival of the funds to their disbursement. Why not require recipients to allow read access to account records for the accounts there World Bank funds are deposited and the same requirement for any entity that is paid from those accounts? The data is already being collected and acceptance of World Bank funds and payment from such funds is entirely voluntary. There would be lots of remaining data mining issues but that would be a start towards greater accountability. Hope you are having a great day! Patrick
