More Information

The Integrity & Compliance Committee is responsible for procedures governing the ethical behaviour of G&A, employees and consultants, and it conducts investigations on alleged staff misconduct. It also sets the standards of integrity that G&A expects of its business partners.

Fraud, corruption and misconduct - a definition

Fraud is the deliberate use of deception to secure an advantage.

Corruption involves the abuse of public or private office for personal gain. It includes bribery, that is to say, the giving or receiving of payment or advantage in order to influence the action of an official.

Misconduct includes any intentional or negligent failure to observe G&A's rules and standards of behaviour.

Corruption and fraud result in the erosion of public confidence in political institutions and legal systems. They distort the allocation of resources, inflate spending on public procurement and undermine competition. 

G&A combats corruption and fraud, as well as misconduct of G&A's employees and consultants, or any other activity, which might compromise the integrity of G&A and its partners.

Reporting fraud, corruption and misconduct

Suspected fraud and corruption in G&A-managed projects, as well as allegations regarding the misconduct of G&A employees or consultants, can be reported by submitting a written report. Anybody, within or outside G&A, may report fraud, corruption and misconduct.

All matters reported will be handled by the Integrity & Compliance Committee for follow-up. All reports, including anonymous ones, will be reviewed. Reports can be made in English language only.

The information that you provide must be truthful, accurate and given in good faith.

Reports of fraud, corruption and misconduct may be provided directly to the Integrity & Compliance Committee by email to whistleblowing@gransier.com. This email account is accessible to the Integrity & Compliance Committee only.

Submitting a written report to the Office of the Integrity & Compliance Committee

To submit a written report, use the online report form or print out the report form and send it by email (whistleblowing@gransier.com) or post it to the Office of the Integrity & Compliance Committee.
To ensure confidentiality, mark the envelope "CONFIDENTIAL.”

Office of the Integrity & Compliance Committee
Austria, 1170 Vienna, Rudolf Baerenhartgasse 13/b/5

Confidentiality and follow-up

If you choose to remain anonymous when submitting a written report, no attempt will be made to discover your identity. However, any subsequent investigation is often more efficient if the reporting party can be contacted for further information or clarification of details. We, therefore, encourage you to disclose your identity and, if you wish, request that it be kept confidential. In that case, G&A will then not reveal information about your identity to anyone not involved in the investigation unless G&A suspects that you have committed or been involved in criminal activity.

If you have left your name and contact details, staff from the Integrity & Compliance Committee can provide you with an update on the actions taken. However, the confidential nature of complaints may restrict the disclosure of details of the investigation.

Supporting documents

Although you do not have to have hard evidence, you can facilitate an investigation by corroborating your report. Supporting documents should be submitted directly to the Integrity & Compliance Committee. Documents submitted will not be returned. They will be treated as confidential.
