The World Bank has banned two African subsidiaries of Oxford University Press (OUP) from doing business with it for three years over alleged corruption.
OUP's Kenyan and Tanzanian subsidiaries made improper payments to government officials, the World Bank said.
UK-based OUP - the world's largest university publisher - said it was disciplining the staff involved.
The World Bank has severed links with several companies in Africa to curb rampant corruption, analysts say.
The alleged corruption involves the supply of school books in Kenya and Tanzania.
The ban against Oxford University Press East Africa Limited (OUPEA) and Oxford University Press Tanzania Limited (OUPT) would stay in force for three years, the World Bank said in a statement.
We have strengthened our management in the regionOxford University Press statement
"The two companies made improper payments to government officials for two contracts to supply text books in relation to two World Bank-financed projects," it said.
OUP had agreed to pay a fine of $500,000 (£318,000) as part of a "negotiated resolution" of the issue, the World Bank added.
"This debarment is testimony to the Bank's continued commitment to protecting the integrity of its projects."
The publisher said it was taking disciplinary action against the employees involved in the "wrongdoing".
"We do not tolerate such behaviour," OUP said.
"We have strengthened our management in the region and are taking appropriate disciplinary action in respect of those involved in this conduct."
The World Bank has banned 83 companies and individuals from doing business with it during this fiscal year as it tries to curb corruption and fraud, it said.
In 2010, it said it imposed a six-year ban on business with Macmillan Publishers Limited because of "bribery linked to an education project in Sudan".
World Bank Sanctions Oxford University Press for Corrupt Practices Impacting Education Projects in East Africa

Two subsidiaries debarred -- company agrees to pay $500,000 to the World Bank as part of settlement
WASHINGTON, July 3, 2012-The World Bank Group today announced the debarment of two wholly-owned subsidiaries of Oxford University Press (OUP), namely: Oxford University Press East Africa Limited (OUPEA) and Oxford University Press Tanzania Limited (OUPT) - for a period of three years following OUP's acknowledgment of misconduct by its two subsidiaries in relation to two Bank-financed education projects in East Africa.
The debarment is part of a Negotiated Resolution Agreement between OUP and the World Bank Group. In May 2011, investigators from the World Bank's Integrity Vice Presidency (INT) approached OUP about potential misconduct in Africa. Following this, OUP conducted an internal investigation into its operations and reported its findings to INT.
"This debarment is testimony to the Bank's continued commitment to protecting the integrity of its projects. OUP's acknowledgment of misconduct and the thoroughness of its investigation is evidence of how companies can address issues of fraud and corruption and change their corporate practices to foster integrity in the development business. In this case, working with the Serious Fraud Office also demonstrates the scope of collective action in deterring corruption impacting the progress of development," said Leonard McCarthy, World Bank Integrity Vice President.
The two companies made improper payments to government officials for two contracts to supply text books in relation to two World Bank-financed projects. As a result, OUPEA and OUPT will be debarred for three years and OUP will receive a conditional non-debarment. In addition, in order to remedy part of the harm done by the misconduct, OUP has agreed to make a payment of US$500,000 to the World Bank as part of the Negotiated Resolution.
Under the Agreement, OUP and its related undertakings, including OUPEA and OUPT, commit to cooperate with the World Bank's Integrity Vice Presidency and continue to improve their internal compliance program. The debarment of OUPEA and OUPT qualifies for cross-debarment by other MDBs under the Agreement of Mutual Recognition of Debarments that was signed on April 9, 2010.

Following Alstom's acknowledgment of misconduct in relation to a Bank-financed hydropower project in Zambia, the World Bank debarred Alstom Hydro France and Alstom Network Schweiz AG (Switzerland) - in addition to their affiliates - for a period of three years as part of a Negotiated Resolution Agreement between Alstom and the World Bank which also includes a restitution payment by the two companies totaling approximately $9.5 million.
Based on an INT referral, UK authoritiesordered Macmillan Publishers Limited to pay over £11 million. WBG debarred Macmillan for 6 years (2010), for bribery linked to an education project in Sudan.
The Norwegian Authorities also took prosecutorial action against three former employees of "Norconsult," based on an INT referral.

takukuru itabidi waingie kazini!
Hapo kwenye red: bunge kupitia kamati inayohusika na elimu linatakiwa kuihoji serikali ili wahusika wachukulie hatua za kisheria. Hii ndiyo kazi ya bunge na hasa kamati zake na sio mipasho.
Takukuru gani ?? ile iliyoisafisha RICHMOND au Kuna takukuru nyingine mpya ??
Mnashangaa nini? someni hapa chini:
Unajuwa kama bunge linafanya kazi vizuri hakuna haja ya kuwa na TAKUKURU kabisa. Bunge kupitia kamati zake linatakiwa liisimamie serikali 24/7x365, na kama ni hatua za kichunguzi zaidi polisi na ofisi ya DPP wanamalizia, halafu mhimili mwingine (Mahakama) unafanya kazi yake. Shida tuliyonayo ni kwamba wabunge wanafanya kazi za ubunge kama 'part-time' na kipindi cha vikao mfano sasa bunge la bajeti ndio kamati zinaanza kufanya kazi!
Tuna kazi kubwa sana ya kubadilisha huu mhimili maana ndio mzizi mkubwa wa umaskini wa Tanzania. Nasisitiza, umasikini wa Tanzania umesababishwa na bunge, and unless we re-constuct this instistition tutaendelea kuwa matonya au miili yetu itaokotwa mabwepande.
Hawa si ndio wamepewa tenda ya vitabu vya chenji ya rada? Eh mola tunusuru, pesa iliyoibiwa kwa rushwa nina wasiwasi inaenda kupotea kwa rushwa tena!
fisi kapewa bucha
Sasa hulikuwa hujuhi kwanini serekali sikivu ilikuw ahaitaki kuwasikia wabunge, na waziri mkuu akasisitiza kuwa VITABU LAZIMA.
Ili jambo la kuhongwa maafisa wa serikali limekuwa kitu cha kawaida. Waziri atakuwa nguvu gani ya kuchukuwa hatua wakati akijua hao maafisa ndiyo mashanta wa kupitisha madili yao?
Ndiyo maana nchi/mashirika wahisani wakishajua kuna harufu rushwa wanaamua kustisha ufadhiri maana wanaona nia na madhumuni hayatafikia malengo katika miradi hiyo.
Na miradi hiyo ikikabidhiwa serikari, miradi inakufa maramoja kwa ajili ya semina za mara kwa mara na mavx wakati ilikuwa sio malengo ya mradi. Na hao TAKUKURU ni mwamvuli wa kuwafunika vigogo.
Nikiona TAKUKURU najisikia kichefu chefu.
Nasubiri kusikia kauli za Wassira na/au Lukuvi kuhusu hili!
