Implementers are required to immediately report Counter-Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) incidents, including allegations of the procurement of commercial sex acts to the Contracting Officer and OIG. Implementers must also institute employee codes of conduct that are consistent with international standards on protection from sexual exploitation and abuse, which applies to all recipients of USAID funding.
Complaints not addressed through the OIG Hotline include:
Allegations by USAID implementers of discrimination on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, religion or sexual preference (please contact your organization’s Equal Employment Opportunity officer)
Sexual harassment, sexual assault, or employee performance issues
