Record keeping and data tracking of allegations of misconduct started in 2006. In July 2008, the former Department of Field Support (DFS) launched the Misconduct Tracking System (MTS), a global, restricted-access database and confidential tracking system for all allegations of misconduct. The system, now called the Case Management Tracking System (CMTS), is managed by the Conduct and Discipline Service (CDS) in the Department for Management Strategy, Policy and Compliance (DMSPC), and it facilitates case management and information sharing between CDS and all Secretariat entities, including field missions.


Sexual exploitation and abuse


When information about possible allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse is received, the information is assessed by the Heads of Missions, by DMSPC and/or by the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS). Reconciliation of information received by the various entities takes place. This is a continuous process that aims to confirm whether information received refers to new allegations.

Updates to the data on allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse are made once reconciliation and assessment of information have been completed, or when information has been received on the outcome of investigations or actions taken in response to substantiated allegations. 

If you would like to receive a notification when a new allegation has been added, you can subscribe to receive updates on data



Other misconduct


Other misconduct refers to all misconduct except sexual exploitation and abuse. The statistical information provided on this website for all other allegations of misconduct is derived monthly from CMTS. A new system for categorizing misconduct was introduced in January 2021. Allegations entered in the system before then are presented according to where they fall in the new categorization.
