Our Commitment

UNOPS personnel are expected to uphold the highest standards of integrity and we have a zero-tolerance policy regarding any instances of misconduct. Reporting misconduct helps to ensure accountability and appropriate conduct at UNOPS, which enables us to achieve our mission. All UNOPS personnel have a duty to report suspected wrongdoing.

UNOPS takes all reports of possible wrongdoing seriously.

UNOPS has established a confidential mechanism for individuals wishing to report misconduct. The Report Wrongdoing Hotline is managed by an independent service provider on behalf of UNOPS to protect confidentiality. It can be accessed worldwide and free of charge. This hotline can be used by both UNOPS personnel and by people from outside UNOPS.

Reports of wrongdoing submitted here are confidentially forwarded to the appropriate reporting unit within UNOPS for further action. Different teams manage different types of wrongdoing:

  • Internal Audit and Investigations Group (IAIG) receives allegations of fraud and financial irregularities, forgery, theft, misuse of resources, conflicts of interest, assault including sexual assault, sexual exploitation and abuse, and violations of local laws.
  • The Internal Grievances team handles any form of discrimination, harassment, including sexual harassment, and abuse of authority. They also investigate improper recruitment processes.
  • The Ethics and Compliance Office (Ethics) is entrusted with managing concerns of retaliation against UNOPS personnel for reporting misconduct or cooperating with an audit, investigation or other duly authorised fact-finding activity.
