Anti Fraud Guidelines

The University of the West Indies values the integrity of its staff and recognizes that they have a key role to play in the prevention, detection and reporting of fraud. All members of staff should therefore be vigilant at all times and report any concerns they may have in a timely manner. The University is committed to creating and maintaining an honest and open working environment where staff members are confident to raise their concerns without fear of reprisal.  These guidelines have been established as part of the Mona Campus’ system of controls that will aid in the detection and prevention of fraud. It is the intention of the Mona Campus to promote consistent departmental procedures by providing guidelines on procedures to be followed when fraud is suspected and the action that should be taken by the management of the Mona Campus.

All reported cases of fraud or impropriety will be investigated. In accordance with the Financial Code, disciplinary or legal action will be considered against any individual or group who perpetrates any act constituting fraud against the University, or any of its stakeholders, customers or vendors. Additionally, all necessary steps will be taken to recover any losses incurred.
