Fraud prevention

The Council’s Fraud Prevention Policy covers a number of areas relating to financial irregularity.

It includes:

  • fraud
  • corruption
  • money laundering
  • bribery
  • tax evasion

We are committed to the prevention and detection of all the areas covered by the policy. As a result all Councillors, managers and employees are required to follow the policy. It also places obligations on those that undertake work on behalf of the Council, e.g. consultants and contractors.

The policy is implemented by the Senior Management Team, and has been approved by the Council’s Cabinet. It is kept under regular review to ensure that it remains fit for purpose and reflects current legislation and guidance.
