Our understanding of integrity is fed by three normative areas in particular: compliance (adherence to legal provisions and institutional guidelines), professional standards (in general applicable to all DEval´s evaluations), and a corporate culture characterised by mutual appreciation and trust. We strive to reach (the widest possible) agreement between ideals, values and rules on the one hand and actual (words and) actions on the other. Hence, we are committed to adhere to the given legal, professional and ethical evaluation principles, including independence and neutrality, scientific character and usefulness, fairness and transparency, as well as social, economic and environmental responsibility. Our understanding of these terms is given in greater detail within the DEval Integrity Guidelines.
