To ensure that Christian Alliance operates in a manner consistent with its charitable purposes and does not engage in activities that could jeopardize its tax-exempt status, periodic reviews shall be conducted.
The periodic monitoring shall, at a minimum, include the following:
- Whether compensation arrangements and benefits are reasonable, based on competent survey information and the result of arm's length bargaining.
- Whether partnerships, joint ventures, and arrangements with management organizations conform to Christian Alliance's written policies, are properly recorded, reflect reasonable investment or payments for goods and services, further charitable purposes, and do not result in inurement, impermissible private benefit, or in an excess benefit transaction.
Christian Alliance's Code of Ethics and Conduct ("Code") required directors, officers and employees to observe high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities. As employees and representatives of the Christian alliance, we must practice honesty and integrity in fulfilling our responsibilities and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
It is the responsibility of all directors, officers and employees to comply with he Code and report violations or suspected violations in accordance with the Whistleblower Policy.
No director, officer or employee who in good faith reports a violation of the Code shall suffer harassment, retaliation or adverse employment consequence. An employee who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment. This Whistleblower Policy is intended to encourage and enable employees and others to raise serious concerns within Christian Alliance prior to seeking resolution outside Christian Alliance.
The Code addresses Christian Alliance's open door policy and suggests that employees share their questions, concerns, suggestions or complaints with someone who can address them properly. In most cases, an employee's supervisor is in the best position to address and area of concern. However, if you are not comfortable speaking with your supervisor or you are not satisfied without supervisor's response ; you are encouraged to speak with someone in the Human Resources Department or anyone in management whom you are comfortable in approaching. supervisors and managers are required to report suspected violations of the Code of Conduct to Christian Alliance's Compliance Officer, who has specific and exclusive responsibility to investigate all reported violations. for suspected fraud, or when you are not satisfied or uncomfortable wit following Christian Alliance's open door policy, individuals should contact Christian Alliance's Compliance Officer directly.

Any allegations that prove not to be substantiated and wich prove to have been made maliciously or knowingly to be false will be viewed as a serious disciplinary offense.
