Welcome to the University‘s anti-corruption and bribery information pages.
The Bribery Act 2010 (the “Act”) came into force on 1st July 2011. While bribery was already a criminal offence, the Act created specific bribery offences, including the new offence of failing to prevent bribery. This web page provides a resource that will help staff understand and comply with the Act.
