Fraud Awareness For Local Government - 'Doing The Right Thing'

Event Description This Reporting Fraud e-learning module is for all staff. Fraud is a significant issue. In their Annual fraud Indicator 2012, the National Fraud Authority (NFA) estimated the total loss to the Local Government sector as being £2.2 billion. This impacts on your ability to maintain both service levels and jobs at a time when budgets are already under pressure. As part of a wider approach to tackling fraud, this module is a key tool for helping you to implement the NFA’s Fighting Fraud Locally strategy, thus helping minimise losses and generate much needed savings.
