To Make a Report

Please note that if you are situated in Kosovo or reporting about a violation that took place in Kosovo, you can select any EU country from the locations’ drop-down menu. You can then mention Kosovo as the location while filling the report. This is because Kosovo is not listed as a country in EthicsPoint’s databases.

After you complete your report you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key." Write down your report key and password and keep them in a safe place. After 5-6 business days, use your report key and password to check your report for feedback or questions.

What Should You Report to GCERF and Why?

The Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund (GCERF) is a multi-stakeholder global fund that works with local partners to strengthen community resilience to violent extremism. GCERF directs resources to support initiatives led by and benefiting local communities.

GCERF has a duty to ensure that the funds that it has received and/or made available to other organisations or contractors are managed appropriately. GCERF has zero tolerance for any form of fraud or corruption. Misuse or misappropriation of GCERF resources must not be allowed to happen.

GCERF’s mission and organisational values mandate all its staff members, including employees, interns or secondees, to perform their duties in accordance with the highest ethical standards. GCERF staff members must not engage in any form of misconduct or inappropriate behavior.

Staff members must also be protected from any form of misconduct or inappropriate behavior. GCERF believes in the importance of a positive work environment, free from any form of abuse and human rights violations.

GCERF is committed to an environment where open and honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. GCERF wishes to be alerted of any suspected or actual violation of:

  • GCERF policies or regulations, including the Standards of Conduct for GCERF Staff and Contractors,
  • the Code of Conduct that is provided to all organisations that receive support from GCERF,
  • any legal obligation GCERF, the organisations it funds or external parties it contracts are subject to, and
  • more generally, of any form of wrongdoing or misconduct.

A number of formal channels are in place to report such cases to GCERF. However, you may not have access to those formal channels, or you may not feel comfortable using those. This Integrity Line has therefore been set up to allow reporting from persons in your situation. This platform also allows you to make an anonymous report in confidence. The platform is hosted by a third party integrity line provider, EthicsPoint. In the event that you have any guidance related questions, you may contact us at integrityline@gcerf.org.

The information you provide will be sent by EthicsPoint to an ethics and compliance specialist on a totally confidential basis. The report may be anonymous if you so choose. You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard. The ethics and compliance specialist will analyse the report and initiate a process that will be suited to the content or nature of your report. You may be contacted again or be kept informed if you so choose.

Please see the EthicsPoint FAQs for more information.

Thank you for your support to GCERF.
