Deciding to report anonymously, or not
When you submit an allegation, you can identify yourself or you can choose to be anonymous. If you choose to identify yourself, your identity will be kept confidential by OII. More information about confidentiality in the context of reporting allegations may be found in the PE-328 Whistleblower Reporting and Protection Policy (as well as Uniform Framework for Preventing and Combating Fraud and Corruption, and elsewhere in Key Documents ).
Anonymous reporting may present disadvantages for you and for the investigation. Anonymous reporting may prevent OII from effectively following up on the allegation, as we may be unable to assess the credibility of an allegation or follow up with necessary questions. Typically, anonymous reporting is more difficult to investigate; so we ask you to provide as much detail and evidence as possible about the suspected Prohibited Practices.
