Report misconduct

IMS staff, partners, beneficiaries and members of public are encouraged to report suspicion of misconduct by IMS staff and partner organisations with financial support from IMS. IMS defines misconduct as abuse of trust, power or position for improper gain.

Please report if:

  • You suspect corruption, nepotism, fraud or other mismanagement of funds by IMS or organisations funded by IMS.
  • You’ve witnessed or experienced bullying, discrimination based on e.g. sex, gender identity and sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, religion, disability or other grounds or sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse.
  • You are aware of other unethical conduct by IMS staff or partners.

When reporting, please include as detailed as possible what happened, when, where and who were involved.

All reported suspicions are received and managed by IMS Human Resource Manager and Steward, e-mail:

If you wish to remain anonymous, you can protect your identity by using an e-mail that cannot be linked to you, by for example creating a Gmail or yahoo account without your name or other personal information. IMS will contact you to inform you about the process and in cases we need clarification, so please check the e-mail that you used for reporting.
