The Directors of Business Loans Scotland are committed to the prevention of bribery and all forms of corruption. The Directors operate a zero tolerance approach to bribery committed by any person working at or on behalf of Business Loans Scotland and any person who provides services for or on behalf of Business Loans Scotland.
Any allegation of bribery by a Director or employee will be investigated in accordance with the Fund's disciplinary procedures and may be reported to the authorities as appropriate. Any allegation of bribery by a Member Authority employee will be referred to their Employer and will be investigated in accordance with their Employer's disciplinary procedures which may also be reported to the authorities as appropriate.
The Fund has a hard won reputation for acting with integrity, transparency and honesty. The Directors are committed to the prevention of bribery because we recognise the importance of maintaining our reputation and the confidence of the business community, the public and other partner organisations.
The Directors will not work with other organisations who we consider do not share our commitment to preventing bribery and corruption.
