Suspected fraud

Policy on Theft, Fraud and Corruption

King's College London has an approved Policy on Theft, Fraud and Corruption. This sets out the procedure for staff to notify of any suspicions and how the university should respond in the event of being notified of a suspected fraud or misuse of funds. 

The policy states that it is a duty of each employee to report an actual or suspected incident of Theft, Fraud or Corruption to the Director of Audit and Business Assurance. Each report will be treated as confidential. 

Fraud response plan

The policy is supplemented by a Fraud Response Plan which defines authority levels, responsibilities for action and reporting lines in the event of a suspected fraud or irregularity.

Public interest

Where a member of the university believes that there is a specific ‘public interest’ involved, including cases of possible financial malpractice, the university Policy on Information Disclosure shall apply. This policy may involve an individual’s concerns being investigated (at least initially) separately from the procedures laid down within the Policy on Theft, Fraud and Corruption.
