HEFCE receives a number of disclosures each year relating to our functions. We have a role to investigate disclosures relating to financial irregularity and impropriety, waste and fraud in the institutions that we fund or where there is non-compliance with charity laws by exempt HEIs for which HEFCE is the principal regulator. We also have a role to investigate enquiries relating to HEFCE’s Prevent monitoring duty.
The process for submitting a public interest disclosure is outlined below, followed by the full guidance and disclosure form. If you have any queries please email PID@hefce.ac.uk or phone HEFCE customer services on 0117 931 7317.
