Anti-Fraud & Corruption Policy

  1. Introduction

    This document sets out the policy and procedures of Myriad against fraud and other forms of dishonesty.
    It applies to Directors, staff (both full and part time) and contractors. Anybody associated with Myriad who commits fraud, theft or any other dishonesty, or who becomes aware of it and does not report it, will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action.

  2. Statement of intent

    Myriad will continually strive to ensure that all its financial and administrative processes are carried out and reported honestly, accurately, transparently and accountably and that all decisions are taken objectively and free of personal interest. We will not condone any behaviour that falls short of these principles.
    All members of Myriad have a responsibility for putting these principles into practice and for reporting any breaches they discover.

  3. Definitions

    a) Fraud: A deliberate intent to acquire money or goods dishonestly through the falsification of records or documents. The deliberate changing of financial statements or other records by either; a member of the public, someone who works or is contracted to Myriad. The criminal act is the attempt to deceive and attempted fraud is therefore treated as seriously as accomplished fraud

    b) Theft: Dishonestly acquiring, using or disposing of physical or intellectual property belonging to Myriad or to individual members of the organisation.

    c) Misuse of equipment: Deliberately misusing materials or equipment belonging to Myriad for financial or material benefit.

    d) Abuse of position: Exploiting a position of trust within the organisation for financial or material benefit.

  4. Culture

    Myriad fosters honesty and integrity in its entire staff. Directors, staff and contractors are expected to lead by example in adhering to policies, procedures and practices. Equally, members of the public, service users and external organisations (such as suppliers and other contractors) are expected to act with integrity and without intent to commit fraud against the Business.

    As part of this, Myriad will provide clear routes by which concerns may be raised by Directors, staff and contractors. Details of this can be found in the Myriad Staff Handbook.
