This policy is intended to enable individuals or organisations to disclose information about malpractice internally and to provide them with protection from subsequent victimisation, discrimination or disadvantage.
This will assist in detecting and deterring malpractice and, by demonstrating our accountability, maintain public confidence and a good reputation.
In line with our commitment to high standards of openness, integrity and accountability, we expect employees who have a reasonable belief that malpractice is taking place within the organisation to come forward and voice those concerns internally.
This may be an awareness of suspected irregularity, wrongdoing or a failure of standards. This policy provides the means for employees to make such disclosures and is attached to this page.
This whistleblowing policy should be read in conjunction with the anti-fraud anti-corruption strategy and fraud response plan.
