UK Government Annual Fraud Reports, Cases and Tools

HM Treasury in the UK maintains an interesting webpage with links to "Annual Government Fraud Reports", "Anti-Fraud Guidance" and case studies of discovered fraud cases. In "Tackling Internal Fraud", a set of useful guidelines and model documents are provided. These include practical templates for an Anti-Fraud Policy and a Fraud Response Plan. The case-studies are particularly helpful in understanding fraud schemes, ranging from check and cash handling fraud to estates management fraud.

A recent estimate by the National Fraud Authority puts annual losses in the public sector due to fraud at around £25 billion. At a time when Government departments have to make significant cuts in spending, this level of loss is unsustainable and every effort should be made to cut fraud losses significantly. . . . A big challenge for departments during a period of significant reform and fiscal consolidation is to ensure that any major business change is delivered within a viable risk management and control framework.
