Fraud Prevention Policy

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 the policy requires it to be followed by all Councillors, managers and employees. 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 will be kept under regular review to ensure that it remains fit for purpose and reflects current legislation and guidance.
