Quest prides itself on an international sport network which is second to none. Coupled with its unique, independent, and discreet approach to integrity and investigations work, Quest is the market leader in conducting investigations into potential wrongdoing in sport, running standalone integrity units and advising on integrity issues in the context of campaigns or combatting online abuse.
To protect our client’s campaign from any unethical activity, Quest employed a multi-faceted approach. Risk assessments produced country and individual risk profiles, which were used to mitigate the reputational threat our client faced in liaising with people and in travelling to countries on the campaign trail. Due diligence and covert investigations into nefarious approaches made to the campaign team were undertaken. These included surveillance,development of intelligence sources and computer forensics.A strong relationship with law enforcement agencies and ethics officers facilitated information sharing, which assisted in ongoing investigations and initiated new investigations int the matters we identified. In partnership with a PR agency we were able to protect our client’s reputation and ensure their integrity remained intact for the duration of the campaign.
This includes operating a multi-lingual, 24/7, telephone, email and webportal whistleblowing hotline allowing the ski and snowboard community to report any form of wrongdoing. Quest’s sports integrity experts conduct a full assessment of the cases, recommending appropriate action. Often, an independent investigation into the facts of the case is required, with Quest making recommendations to FIS on what sanctions may be available in accordance with the FIS Universal Code of Ethics. Since inception, Quest has investigated and resolved issues spanning from safeguarding transgressions to competition manipulation, doping and other wider forms of institutional corruption. We also act as independent scrutineers during the FIS Congress and other high-level meetings. With Quest at the heart of their organisation, FIS is recognised as one of the leading international federations when it comes to governance and integrity.
