About reporting corruption

If you have suspicion of misuse or encounter cases of corruption with funds from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Danida, we request you to disclose your information through the report corruption webpage. Any member of the public may use this channel of communication.

The reporting process

When you file a report you will receive an automatic acknowledgement of receipt from our system. When we process your information, we may find it necessary to return with more qualifying questions regarding the activities under suspicion in order to substantiate the case. It is therefore essential that you give us an active e-mail address to respond to. We seek to process your report within two weeks and we will always give you acknowledgement of having processed your report.

Confidentiality

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Danida will treat your report confidentially and ensure that it will only be seen by the relevant people in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Danida’s anti-corruption team, under the limitations of the Danish Access to Public Administration Files Act.

Anonymity

You can choose to remain anonymous. That means, however, that in certain situations the Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Danida cannot proceed with an investigation of the conditions that you have reported as corrupt because we may prioritise your safety. Furthermore, an investigation will always be more difficult to undertake if it is based on an anonymous report.

What actions are taken?

Once a case has been identified we initiate procedures, in coordination with the relevant partners when possible, to probe further the case, and to halt any further similar misuse. As part of the process Danida will seek to place a responsibility, decide whether to proceed with a local police report and determine the degree of claims for reimbursement of funds. In the end the case may consequently mean a stop to the cooperation with the partner in question.
