Finance Division

 

The University and all its staff have a responsibility to ensure that neither their conduct, nor the conduct of any person or organisation entering into any contract or arrangement with the University contravenes the Bribery Act 2010.

Our online course guides you through the scope of the Bribery Act and Criminal Finances Act and highlights some of the situations that you should be aware of.


Who should complete the course?

Ideally, the Audit Committee would recommend that training be completed by all staff.  At the very least, training should be completed by all those, at any level of seniority, who:

  • hold any kind of management role (e.g. all principal investigators) and/or have the authority to incur any level of expenditure
  • have international dealings of any kind, but particularly in emerging markets or areas of the world where risk of corruption is higher
  • work with contractors
  • contract on behalf of CUTS
  • are involved at any level in a decision to contract, i.e. to offer or receive goods, services, donations or research grants or contracts.

The above applies to individuals working within the University at all levels and grades, including officers, employees (whether permanent, fixed term or temporary), workers, trainees, seconded staff, agency staff, volunteers, interns or any other person working in any context within the institution.  Third parties must confirm in their contracts with the University that they have undertaken their own, equivalent, training. 


How often should the course be taken?

The course should take about 30-minutes to complete (followed by a mandatory knowledge check) and should be completed every two years.
