Reporting of potential irregularities

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark (MFA) is committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professional ethics among staff in every area of our operations, and to ensuring the proper administration of public funds. The MFA wants to promote an open organisational culture where staff can safely report illegalities or serious irregularities. This also applies to employees of the partners with whom we have a more continuous and formalised cooperation.

Whistle-blower mechanism

The MFA whistle-blower mechanism provides a channel for reporting on:

  • Criminal offences
  • Serious or repeated violations of the law
  • Serious or repeated violations of administrative law principles or significant internal guidelines
  • Serious personal conflicts in the workplace
  • Sexual harassment
  • Deliberate misinformation of citizens or partners

You can read more about the mechanism in the document Case processing procedure – Step by Step

DANIDA Anti-corruption hotline

The hotline is for you, who works for a partner receiving external grants from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, or who in any other way has knowledge about corruption or other forms of irregular administration of activities financed through Danish development assistance.
