DAI is committed to conducting business in compliance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, and in accordance with the highest standards of business ethics. This Code of Business Conduct and Ethics alerts DAI employees and affiliates to areas of ethical risk, and provides guidance and information to help them recognize and deal with ethical issues. DAI employees and affiliates can elevate questions, concerns, or allegations without fear of retaliation. If you see something, say something. Contact your supervisor, manager, Chief of Party/Team Leader, or Ethics and Compliance Officer.

DAI People

As DAI employees, we are responsible for adhering to the company’s professional and ethical standards while also complying with DAI policies and procedures and applicable contractual and legal requirements. The Code cannot and does not anticipate every possible situation that could arise in the course of business; therefore, you must use good judgment in adhering to these standards and avoiding even the appearance of impropriety. Any DAI employee who violates this Code, permits a subordinate to do so, or fails to promptly inform a supervisor, Chief of Party, Team Leader, or Ethics and Compliance Officer of a known violation will be subject to disciplinary action (up to and including termination).

Our actions must consistently demonstrate that we fairly and honestly deal with our colleagues, clients, collaborators, vendors, and beneficiaries. This ethical standard is essential to the implementation of successful development projects, as well as demonstrating to clients that we can be trusted to do the right thing when managing their resources and to beneficiaries that we are worthy partners as they seek to realize their aspirations for better lives.
