Counter fraud and anti-bribery

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

Our 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 our university is committed to operating. Any losses to our university through fraud, irregularities, bribery and corruption have wide-ranging implications including financial and reputational damage as well as diverting resources away from our university’s core operations and achievement of its strategic objectives.

Counter-Fraud and Anti-Bribery Policy

The aims of our Counter Fraud and Anti-Bribery 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 our university on how to recognise and address fraud, irregularity, bribery and corruption issues

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

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