Corporate Governance Framework

Our corporate governance framework sets out the necessary responsibilities and procedures that guarantee we operate properly.

Avenues for reporting fraud

7. The Commission has avenues in place for reporting suspicions of fraud. The detailed response plan is in Annex A. Employees should report any such suspicions in the first instance to their resource manager, or, if that is not appropriate, directly to the Chief Finance Officer, the Chief Executive, to any member of the Commission’s Audit and Risk Committee, a Commissioner or to the Internal Auditors.

8. All matters will be dealt with in confidence and in strict accordance with the terms of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (opens in new tab), which protects the legitimate personal interests of employees. Vigorous and prompt investigations will be carried out into all cases of actual or suspected fraud discovered or reported. Those reporting suspicions of fraud may be required as witnesses in any criminal proceedings.
