Policy on registration and declaration of interests

The University is committed to the highest standards of openness, integrity and accountability.

University employees and others with responsibility for administration or management of University funds must not use their authority or office for personal gain and must always seek to uphold and enhance the standing of the University. Any personal interest which may impinge on an employee's impartiality in any matter relevant to his or her duties should be declared by the employee to his or her Head of School or Head of Professional Services Division or other appropriate authority, in accordance with the University’s policy on registration and declaration of interests. Members of Council, all senior staff, staff with significant financial authority and staff with access to privileged information are required to disclose material interests in the University’s register of interests, maintained by the Registrar and Secretary. All other members of staff must disclose any interests which might be deemed to be in conflict with their duties with the Registrar and Secretary, for inclusion in the Register of Interests. No person shall be a signatory to any University contract where he or she also has a material interest in the activities of the other party.
