UNFPA Investigations Hotline

UNFPA Investigations Hotline

DOS has established this Investigations Hotline to provide a confidential mechanism for individuals wishing to report fraud or other types of wrongdoing. Reports of wrongdoing provided through this hotline are stored on a secure server. UNFPA safeguards these reports from any accidental or negligent disclosure. Wrongdoing that may be reported using this hotline include but are not limited to:

  • Unlawful acts (for example theft, fraud, embezzlement, solicitation/acceptance of bribes or kickbacks, extortion, possession or sale of illegal substances, smuggling);
  • Misrepresentation, forgery, or false certification in connection with any official claim or benefit, including failure to disclose a fact material to that claim or benefit (for example regarding dependency allowance, rental subsidy, insurance, education grant, tax reimbursement or travel cost claims);
  • Mishandling of contract obligations and relations with third parties leading to loss of property or assets, or generating liabilities for the Organization;
  • Failure to disclose an interest or relationship with a third party who might benefit from a decision in which the staff member takes part; favoritism in the award of a contract to a third party.
  • Allegations of harassment, sexual harassment or abuse of authority (please see the specific procedures in the UNFPA Policy on Harassment, Sexual Harassment and Abuse of Authority required for the reporting of such allegations; the policy is available in the UNFPA PPM, Personnel Policies and Procedures ( DocuShare );
