Fraud and Corruption Control Policy update

No longer on display. Expired on 18 January 2021, 05:00 PM

A fraud and corruption risk assessment was completed by Council’s Internal Auditors in December 2019.

The assessment identified that Council’s current Fraud and Corruption Prevention Policy was outdated and hence may not reflect current best practice which in turn may increase the risk of non-compliance with key requirements. 

A number of additional recommendations were made regarding possible improvements to Council’s overall fraud and corruption risk management framework.

In response to the above, a review of Council’s existing Fraud and Corruption Prevention Policy has been undertaken and the Fraud and Corruption Control Policy (the Policy) has been created to replace it.

The Policy is based on the NSW Audit Office’s “Fraud Control Improvement Kit 2015” (the Kit) and Australian Standard 8001-2008 Fraud and Corruption Control (the Standard). 

It outlines the high-level commitment by Council to the implementation of strategies and actions that support Fraud and Corruption control.  It sets out the responsibilities under the fraud and corruption risk management framework for implementing and monitoring appropriate actions. 

The Policy will be supported by the Fraud & Corruption Control Strategy (the Strategy) and operationalised by the Fraud & Corruption Control System (the System).

This suite of documents will further enhance Council’s overall fraud and corruption risk management framework and keep it up-to-date/compliant with the current practice/requirements.
