LUCS is a not-for-profit wholly owned subsidiary of Lancaster University. LUCS was created in 2009 to protect all staff in the University when they undertake private consultancy and wish to benefit from insurance cover at the same level as the University provides to staff undertaking university duties.
LUCS provides a service to all members of staff at the University to assist them if they have chosen to channel any private consultancy (see definition immediately below) they propose to undertake through LUCS. The principal aim of LUCS’ assistance is to help staff at the University in facilitating private consultancy contracts in their area of expertise to clients across the globe. Such assistance will at all times be consistent with the University policy on outside professional activities (Ref PS/98/791) and its financial regulations (Nov 2009). The financial regulations are detailed further in the Appendices Document.
