Anti Fraud & Corruption Policy
The Council’s Anti-Fraud and Corruption Policy is the overall framework for good ethical governance at North Hertfordshire District Council.
The Policy sets out the Council’s commitment to the prevention and detection of fraud and corruption. This Policy links closely to the Council’s Priority of 'Living within our means' to deliver cost effective services. It summarises the responsibilities of Members, management and employees and outlines the procedures to be followed where suspicion of financial irregularity is raised.
In order to ensure that the Council’s Anti-Fraud and Corruption Policy is current, relevant, and reflects best practice, the Policy is reviewed and updated on an annual basis.
The Senior Management Team, chaired by the Chief Executive has responsibility for officer review of the Policy and the Portfolio Holder for Finance, Cllr Hone provides Member endorsement.
