Monitoring and reporting of concerns
The Council of the University will monitor the application of this guidance and the University's compliance with the Bribery Act through its risk management and audit procedures.
Reporting of concerns or incidents of bribery or improper conduct
All staff have a responsibility to report to their Faculty Pro-Vice-Chancellor/Director of Professional Service (or other notified manager) any concerns they may have about potential improper conduct by employees or by individuals or organisations outside the University (for example, potential suppliers, donors or students).
The Public interest disclosure policy should be used if it is not appropriate to report concerns to the Faculty Pro-Vice-Chancellor/Director of Professional Service, for example if an employee has any concerns about potential improper conduct by their Faculty Pro-Vice-Chancellor or Director of Professional Service.
The Faculty Pro-Vice-Chancellor/Director of Professional Service (or other notified manager) should report any concerns or incidents of bribery or improper conduct immediately to the Chief Financial Officer in accordance with the Fraud Response Plan. The Fraud Committee (the Registrar, the Chief Financial Officer and the Director of Human Resources) will determine what action should be taken in response.
