The Whistleblowing Policy aims to strengthen the integrity system at OSS and to fight against corruption and other wrongful acts. It defines procedures and conditions for investigating corruption allegations, fraud and any other breaches.
In accordance with this commitment and in order to promote good governance and transparency, the whistleblowing policy aims, first, to provide an opportunity to make concerns regarding corruption, fraud and any other breach heard and, second, to provide assurance that whistleblowers against cases of fraud, corruption or any other breach are protected against retaliation of any form.
OSS policy in terms of good financial governance highlights the need to detect, report and, more importantly, to prevent any form of resources mismanagement. The establishment of a whistleblowing mechanism will strengthen the good governance within OSS and the projects it funds and coordinates.
