The Foundation for Support to Research, Education and Extension - Funep, always seeking to be ahead of its time and offer the best services to its partners, started in March 2020, the work aimed at the certification in the ABNT NBR ISO 37001:2017, which has the goal to provide requirements and guidelines for the establishment, implementation, maintenance and improvements of an Anti-Bribery Management System. Thus, organizations certified by this Standard must have an Integrity Program or Compliance Program that meets all nine Pillars considered essential, which are:
To meet the requirements contained in these Pillars, Funep created policies and procedures and several other documents, which aim to support and highlight all the ethical and transparent work which is conducted daily within our Foundation.
After the implementation of the Integrity Program and the elaboration of all this documentary mass, Funep underwent an extremely demanding and rigorous External Audit, carried out by the Certification Body, from 16 to 18 December 2020, and for our enormous satisfaction, we obtained the CERTIFICATION, as shown in the Certificate. From this date onwards, Funep undergoes annual internal and external audits to maintain the Certification.
Funep, showing its pioneering spirit, is one of the first Support Foundations to achieve the Certification in this ISO, precisely to give its partners the certainty and tranquility that they are working with an incorruptible and honest Organization, with which they can sign contracts / agreements and invest their resources, being it in financing research projects, sponsoring events or publishing books, without the fear and insecurity that there may be any kind of misconduct.
