WADA to add Compliance Investigation
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has announced the addition of a Compliance Investigation Section (CIS) to the organization’s Intelligence and Investigations Department (I&I).
WADA said the CIS is aimed at further strengthening the I&I, with the section dedicated to investigating non-compliance by signatories to the World Anti-Doping Code.
The addition of the CIS has been supported by additional funding provided by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Chinese Government.
"One of WADA’s priority functions is to monitor the work of World Anti-Doping Code Signatories to ensure they remain in compliance with the Code and the International Standards,” said Olivier Niggli, WADA director-general.
"Around one-quarter of all allegations WADA I&I receive through its whistleblower platform, ‘Speak up!’, relates to Code compliance by signatories and it simply has not been possible to investigate all the allegations as effectively as we would like with our existing resources.
"While much of the intelligence is passed on to WADA’s internal Compliance Taskforce, that group does not have the resources or the required skills to investigate fully.
"As such, the addition of this new section is a game-changer for compliance and will aim to make a real difference in WADA’s compliance monitoring activities.
"We are grateful to the IOC and the Chinese Government for this additional support."
WADA says the recruitment process is already underway for the CIS.
The section is expected to consist of an intelligence analyst and a compliance investigator.
A confidential information manager, specifically focusing on compliance investigations, will also be added to the WADA I&I team.
WADA says the additions will bring the total number of staff in its I&I to 15.
