Regulations and policies
The key document that governs the way the University manages its financial affairs is the Finance Regulations, which is approved by Council and which sets out the broad policies relating to financial controls.
Compliance with the Financial Regulations is compulsory for all staff connected with the University. A member of staff who fails to comply with the Financial Regulations may be subject to disciplinary action under the University’s disciplinary policy.
Guidance on how to apply the Finance Regulations to operational practice is found under Financial Operations.
The University is committed to an effective anti-fraud and corruption strategy designed to encourage prevention, promote detection and clarify responses through a defined plan which incorporates investigatory action. This is set out in the Fraud Policy Statement and the Fraud Response Plan, which outlines the process for staff who wish to notify any suspicions to senior management and also how senior management should respond to such notifications.
