HARARE – Resurgent Premier Service Medical Aid Society has moved to increase its levels of transparency and accountability by joining international whistleblowing platform Tip Offs Anonymous.
In the clearest move yet of the medical funder’s change of corporate direction, PSMAS announced the beginning of the relationship with the whistleblower programme from 1st September 2017. Tip Offs Anonymous is a globally recognised platform for exposing fraud that is administered by global financial and corporate services powerhouse Deloitte.
PSMAS, which has been moving swiftly to reshape its image and business model, has been on a recovery path since it was embroiled in negative corporate management issues. Lately, the organisation has allowed greater scrutiny and transparency of its operations, beginning with greater media accessibility and the publication of its finances.
“PSMAS is committed to being an open, honest and transparent organisation, with greater accountability. As part of our strategic direction, we are presenting an opportunity for members, service providers and even members of the public to look out for possible fraudulent activity within the Society and within our stakeholders.
“The glory of Tip Offs Anonymous is that whatever tip offs are made, the information does not come to PSMAS directly, but is handled by a third party which has vast experience in verifying the information and taking the necessary steps thereafter.
“We are very happy, as an organisation to be a part of Tip Offs Anonymous because this reinforces our commitment to honouring our values as an organisation. It also serves to notify all our stakeholders that we are completely geared towards achieving the kind of service we have always promised,” said PSMAS in a statement.
According to a post of the Tip Offs Anonymous Deloitte website: “We are a completely independent, confidential whistleblowing hotline service operating 24-hours a day, 7 days per week and 365 days a year. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an employee, customer, supplier, manager or shareholder – now you can report fraud and inappropriate activities in an organization in a safe, confidential and secure way.Tip-off information can be given to us by phoning the toll free 0800 number assigned to the organization by e-mail, web, sms text message (we will return your call), fax or post”
