Norad’s Whistleblowing channel

Norad’s Fraud unit (Whistleblowing channel) manages cases related to suspicion of financial irregularities within Norad’s grant management.

If you have any suspicions of financial irregularities or other misconduct, this should be reported to Norad’s Whistleblowing channel or Norad’s external reporting channel, BDO AS.

The Whistleblowing channel can be reached via:

Reporting via the external whistleblowing channel

The purpose of Norad’s external whistleblowing channel is to strengthen internal control and fight corruption within development aid, by making it easy and safe to report fraud and misconduct.

Examples of unacceptable circumstances are: financial irregularities, harassment, discrimination and racism.

Upon suspicion of any illegal or unethical cases, BDO AS should be notified through one of these channels:

  • Electronic reporting form
  • Telephone: (+47) 970 86 000. This number is serviced between 08 am and 17 pm (GMT+1). Please leave a message on the answering machine after office hours.
  • Email: integrity@bdo.no
  • Reporting by post, mark the envelope “Whistleblowing channel” and send to:
    BDO AS by granskingsenheten
    Postboks 1704 Vika
    0121 Oslo

Office address: BDO AS, Munkedamsveien 45, 0121 Oslo.

Regardless of the channel you use, you can decide to remain anonymous or not. You can also choose to be anonymous vis-à-vis Norad while allowing your identity to be known to Kluge Advokatfirma DA.
