Fraud, malpractices and misconduct by Management & Staff have a negative impact on an organisation. Most reported cases are uncovered through whistle-blowing. By sharing what you know can help APSN continue to maintain its ethical standards in its practices and conduct.
The APSN Whistle-blowing Policy aims to provide a reporting channel for all stakeholders to make such a report. The information provided will be channelled to the Whistle-blowing Investigation Panel comprising both Chairmen of APSN Education Services Ltd. and APSN Ltd., Chairman of the Audit & Risk Committee, and Chairman of the Human Capital Committee.
The reports and identities of the whistle-blowers will be kept confidential to the extent feasible and permissible under the law.
As a general guide, whistle-blowing matters typically encompass the following broad categories, including but not limited to:
i) General misconduct or unethical conduct
ii) Breach of laws, rules & regulations
iii) Conflict of interest transactions
iv) Unsafe practices endangering the health and safety of another person
v) Fraudulent activities
vi) Incorrect financial reporting
For non-whistle-blowing feedback on APSN operations, programmes and human resource policies, please go to www.apsn.org.sg/enquiries-feedback.
Reports should be as specific and detailed as possible; and can be sent via email or ordinary mail to:
By Ordinary Mail
(Attn: APSN Whistle-blowing Investigation Panel)
11 Jalan Ubi Block 2 #02-12
Only reports pertaining to matters that fall under the whistle-blowing scope will be investigated.
Where possible, the whistle-blower is encouraged to disclose his/her personal details (i.e. name, email address and/or telephone number) to enable the relevant parties conducting the investigation to contact the whistle-blower for further information.
Based on the nature of the report, the Whistle-blowing Investigation Panel may assign an appropriate staff or set up a team to investigate the allegations raised in the report.
All findings and recommendations of the investigation shall be reported to the Panel for decisions on action(s) to be taken.
APSN shall at its sole discretion, taking into account relevant legal and/or confidentiality obligations, determine if the whistle-blower should be notified of the outcome.
