To accompany the release of the Outcomes of the Fighting Fraud Fund Report the LGA committed to host a resources section within the counter fraud hub.
Every organisation, whether large or small, is at risk from fraud and councils are no exception to this. All councils have a duty to protect the public purse and a major part of this is by limiting exposure to fraud and corruption and reducing risk through effective prevention and detection.
Councils, even the smallest, are constantly under threat from fraudsters whether that be single person discount fraud, reducing council revenue or a cyberattack causing a major data loss, reputational damage and fines from the information commissioner.
Identifying and stopping fraud means that our scarce resources can be directed as intended: to provide key public services to those that depend on them.
To support this on-going effect and to accompany the release of the Outcomes of the Fighting Fraud Fund Report the LGA committed to host a resources section within the counter fraud hub. This page identifies a range of practical support and guidance to help counter fraud professionals, procurement practitioners and contract managers to easily access a wide range of existing resources including; reports, templates, checklists and videos.
