Counter Fraud and Corruption Strategy


The Committee received a report of the Corporate Director of Resources which provided the revised Counter Fraud and Corruption Strategy, highlighting the main changes that had been made to the previously agreed strategy (for copy see file of minutes).


Mr Rudd highlighted the low number of fraud cases that had resulted in prosecution or sanctions and enquired if there was a requirement to review the procedures. The Corporate Fraud Manager advised that the aim was to prosecute all fraud, however consideration of the cost to pursue criminal prosecution against the recovery cost was a deciding factor in getting the balance right.



That the report be noted, and the Counter Fraud and Corruption Strategy at Appendix 2 of the report be approved.
