ECW ANNOUNCES NEW MISUSE OF FUNDS POLICY AND COMMUNICATIONS PROTOCOL
ECW has a zero tolerance policy towards any misuse of its funds. That means action will be taken to address any incident of misuse and secure recovery of any resources lost. ECW takes a broad definition of misuse: it is the use, or attempted use, of funds for purposes other than for which they have been approved, and includes corrupt, fraudulent, coercive, collusive and obstructive conduct.
ECW has produced a Policy on Misuse of Funds and a Communications Protocol. This document, which you can download here, gives more detail on our definition of ‘misuse’. It also sets out how a suspected incident can be reported, and the steps that ECW will take to address credible allegations of misuse. It explains what supporting information is needed, and provides an email address which can be used anonymously by anyone who wishes to submit details of a suspected misuse of ECW funds.
