Counter fraud and anti-bribery

We expect all staff and governors to uphold high standards, leading by example, with integrity and responsibility.

The University has a number of regulations and procedures in place to make sure that the way in which we work on a day-to-day basis is properly controlled and to reduce the likelihood of fraud, irregularity, bribery or corruption occurring.

Fraud and bribery are criminal offences in UK law and undermine the open, ethical and transparent way that the University is committed to operating. Any losses to the University through fraud, irregularities, bribery and corruption have wide-ranging implications including financial and reputational damage as well as diverting resources away from the University’s core operations and achievement of its strategic objectives.

Counter-Fraud Policy and Anti-Bribery & Corruption Policy

The aims of the University's Counter Fraud Policy and Anti-Bribery & Corruption Policy are to:

  • Continue to promote a culture of honesty, integrity and professionalism
  • Set out our responsibilities and of those working for us, or on our behalf, in observing and upholding our position on fraud, irregularity, bribery and corruption
  • Provide information and guidance to those working for the University on how to recognise and address fraud, irregularity, bribery and corruption issues

The Counter Fraud Policy and Anti-Bribery & Corruption Policy applies to all individuals working at all levels and grades.

The Counter Fraud Policy and Anti-Bribery & Corruption Policy should be read in conjunction with our Whistleblowing (‘Public Interest Disclosure’) Policy & Procedure.
