Guidelines on financial investments: Decisions about monetary investments to earn interest, as frequently requested by monetary donors, are taken only at the headquarters of "Help – Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe" in Bonn (Finance Department). Exclusively risk-free investment options such as time deposits are considered.
Our guidelines on travel expenses are based on the Federal Travel Expenses Act (BRKG). The legal text can be found on the website of the Federal Ministry of Justice.
When awarding goods and services, the dual control principle applies at Help, i.e. at "Help – Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V." important decisions are not taken by a single employee on their own.
