Competition Code and corporate governance compliance manual
The manual is in two parts.
- The first part (The Competition Code) deals with obligations which are now imposed on the University and its staff under The Competition Code. It is relevant to and should be read by all University staff.
- The second part deals with Corporate Governance. "Corporate Governance" is about the management of business enterprises organised in corporate form. This part is relevant to and should be read by all University staff who occupy a senior management position or who represent the University on the board of a corporation associated with the University.
John Lambrick, University Solicitor is the University’s Compliance Officer and is able to assist with queries in respect of the manual and compliance issues in general.
It is important that non-compliance with any of the matters set out in the manual be reported immediately to the Compliance Officer. Early reporting may avoid or significantly reduce any adverse consequences of non-compliance.
A non-compliance report should set out the following:
A brief description of the non-compliance
- A proposal for rectification
- A time-frame for rectification
The compliance officer will maintain a register of reports.[Next: The Competition Code]
