Anti-Corruption Policy


    DFPA works to actively prevent cases of corruption both among ourselves and our partners. We acknowledge our responsibility to oppose any case of corruption so that funds administered by the DFPA are administered according to purpose and with the greatest possible degree of transparency. The Anti-Corruption Policy applies to all volunteers, employees, leaders and the Management Board of the DFPA and of our partners. The Anti-Corruption Policy can be downloaded here.


    How to report suspicions of corruption
    If you suspect that a case of corruption has taken place, please fill out this form and forward it to complaint[AT]

    DFPA has a standing anti-corruption committee, which receives forwarded reports of corruption. The committee consists of two employees, appointed by the liaison committee and a representative of the Management Board, appointed by the Board. On basis of the reported complaints, the committee evaluate whether an investigation committee should be appointed.

    The Head of the Management Board, departmental leaders and employees who work with the finances of the association and payments cannot be represented in the committee.

    The reported complaints will be treated confidentially and with respect for the person making the report and the person(s) or organisations, about which there is suspicion. Anonymous reports are not accepted. All cases of corruption must be reported to the standing anti-corruption committee, including cases which have been investigated locally in a partner country or cases which contain a risk of personal safety.


    DFPA wishes to have an open policy regarding our practice for finances and accounting. Cases of corruption or cases where an investigation has taken place due to a suspicion of corruption will be published on the homepage of the association.



    The term corruption covers: bribery, embezzlement, extortion, nepotism and fraud. Fraud is defined as economic crime, which include scams, economic deception and forgery.
