Report fraud

GPE partners seek to ensure the most effective use of all resources supporting developing country partners’ education goals. GPE trust fund resources will sometimes be allocated for use in environments where there is high risk of misuse of funds, through fraud, corruption and other poor practices. This could lead to GPE trust funds being used for a purpose other than that for which they were approved by the Board of Directors.

GPE Partners have zero tolerance for misuse and will use their own policies to always take action to address the misuse and secure recovery of GPE Trust Fund resources lost to misuse. The GPE Secretariat carefully monitors the situation with the relevant grant agents, developing country partners, and donors to ensure that all funds identified as misused are reimbursed.
