IDENTIFYING AND REPORTING CORRUPTION

“The time is always right to do what is right.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dakshana is committed to the highest ethical standards. Dakshana wants to work with people and organisations who aim to run ethical businesses. We have a zero-tolerance policy for businesses or people that do not obey the letter and spirit of all relevant laws, particularly in the areas of corruption, tax-fraud, terrorism and money-laundering. The letter and spirit of employee protection laws are also a major focus for Dakshana.

Dakshana does not pay or take bribes or kickbacks and does not tolerate such payments by any partner even if told that is “how business is done”.

REPORTING PROCESS

Contact Dakshana’s CEO to report concerns or evidence that corruption, fraud, bribery or some other form of misconduct may have occurred or is occurring related to any Dakshana transaction. You may report allegations to Dakshana by email, fax, mail, in person, or by telephone. (Only Dakshana staff can access any such communication.)

Allegations may be reported by any source, including confidential or anonymous sources. However, please note that anonymous reports are much harder to investigate as it may be more difficult to ascertain the truth. Anyone making an allegation is encouraged to provide some means that will allow Dakshana to communicate with you.

Who do you think committed fraud or corruption? Who else might have been involved?

What happened? Describe the events fully with as much relevant detail as possible.

Who else might have information?

Who will know that you made a report?

How does your allegation relate to an Dakshana donation or program? Was Dakshana staff involved?

Reports regarding Dakshana will be evaluated by Dakshana’s CEO, who will submit a recommendation for further evaluation, if any, to the Board of Trustees. Reports alleging prohibited conduct by Dakshana staff are reported to supervisors and escalated to Dakshana’s CEO, to the extent not resolved. Investigations with respect to Dakshana staff are conducted by the CAO and COO on behalf of the CEO; a report is presented to the CEO with recommendations on the matter, and the CEO ensures that the recommended actions are taken.
