Tip-Offs Anonymous

Globally, it is recognised that the most effective source of information to combat fraud is a whistleblowing hotline. Having an independent hotline to report unethical or criminal behaviour helps to strengthen an organisation’s first line of defence in combatting fraud

Introduction

Deloitte Tip-offs Anonymous (TOA) is a global Deloitte product that was established in early 1999 in response to a need to assist private and public sector organisations and entities in their fight against ethics and compliance issues, as well as fraud and corruption within their organisations.

Globally, it is recognised that the most effective source of information to combat fraud is a whistleblowing hotline. Having an independent hotline to report unethical or criminal behaviour helps to strengthen an organisation’s first line of defence in combatting fraud.

When an organisation signs up for TOA, it allows anyone to anonymously report unethical workplace behaviour in relation to the organisation, be they an employee, customer, supplier, manager, shareholder or member of the general public.

Why Deloitte TOA and not another provider?

  2. We have more than 320 subscribing clients in Southern Africa able to act as references.
  3. We can provide various local languages across Southern Africa and other parts of the world.
