Checklist for professional ethics

In the volatile settings in which HI operates, we invest considerable effort in safeguarding our assets and resources and fighting bribery and corruption.

 
 

External control

In addition to internal checks and audits, HI’s management and activities are submitted to different categories of external controls. These include audits by our statutory auditor, as well as controls and audits conducted by the European Commission, international cooperation or United Nations agencies, as well as national funding agencies, for projects financed and implemented in the field.

Label IDEAS

With the help of the Institute for the Development of Ethics and Action for Solidarity (IDEAS), in January 2016 HI engaged in enhancing its governance, financial management and effectiveness. After an independent audit conducted on the basis of 120 IDEAS criteria, our organisation was awarded the IDEAS label in recognition of the quality of our governance, financial management and the efficiency of our actions.

IDEAS, a vector of confidence for funders and donors, attests to the implementation by non-profit organizations of good practices in governance, financial management and monitoring of the effectiveness of the action.
