The Water Research Commission Takes a Very Strong Stand
Against Fraud and Corruption
In 2009 the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners released the “Report to the Nation on Occupational Fraud and Abuse 2008” which highlighted the global trend towards corruption being rated as the number one modus operandi experienced by organisations. In the 2012 report corruption is still cited as one of the greatest risks to organisations world-wide and comprises up to 50% of reported fraud.
In 2009 the Water Research Commission introduced an independent hotline facility where employees can report any form of unethical practice, including sexual harassment and racial discrimination, in an anonymous and secure manner.
To ensure the protection of the whistle blower the hotline is independently hosted and administered by KPMG.
