Whistleblowing (Public Interest Disclosure)

The University encourages a culture of openness and transparency, and has put the Whistleblowing Policy/Procedure in place to promote that culture. This Policy/Procedure provides for investigation and, where appropriate, action in respect of 'whistleblowing' disclosures. 

A whistleblowing disclosure means a disclosure of information to the University which, in the reasonable belief of the person making the disclosure, is made in the public interest. This may include a reasonable belief that one or more of the following has occurred, is occurring or is likely to occur: 
• the commission of a criminal offence; 
• a failure to observe a legal obligation; 
• a miscarriage of justice; 
• a danger to the health and safety of any person; 
• damage to the environment; 
• suppression or concealment of any information relating to any of the above.

The Board of Governors has designated the Audit Committee as the body which will oversee the proper conduct of investigations of whistleblowing disclosures and to ensure that the provisions of the Policy/Procedure are properly applied. The Audit Committee has appointed the University Secretary as the Designated Officer for this Procedure.
