História biográfica

The Loan Committee was responsible for reviewing all IBRD and IDA adjustment operations, debt operations, and Expanded Cofinancing Operations which provided policy-based quick-disbursing assistance to borrowing countries. In addition, a regional vice president could request that the Loan Committee review and provide guidance on any investment operation with exceptional or unusual features. The Loan Committee was replaced in January 1996 by the Operations Committee and that Committee's mandate was changed to concentrate on the review of Country Assistance Strategies and on select operations which warranted Bank-wide attention because of their policy implications, risks, innovative nature, etc.

Âmbito e conteúdo

The records of the Loan Committee consist of three distinct types of files: minutes; records of the chairman; and background information. The official Loan Committee minutes were maintained by the Bank's Central Files unit until 1987; this Central Files series is the first series of this fonds. Thereafter the official set of minutes became the responsibility of staff attached to the office of the Committee chairman; the second and third series are these records. Some gaps exist in the minutes, but records of these meetings may be found in the series of records of the chairman.

The chairmen of the Commitee also maintained records that, while partly duplicating the series of official minutes, also contain handwritten notes and annotations revealing the chairman's personal reactions to proposals. These are the fourth and fifth series in the fonds.

The bulk of the fonds is a series of project files, mainly from the 1980s, arranged by country. Each file contains the basic documents relating to the Committee's actions on a specific project. While the series of minutes show the chronological development of lending, this background series enables the researcher to look at all projects in a country or region to understand the project emphases in a geographical area. Taken together, the series in this fonds provide a comprehensive picture of the Bank's projects and the shifting priorities in lending policy over time.
