Counter Fraud Corruption Strategy

Last updated on: 09-Apr-2021

1. Introduction

We ('The Council') are funded by the "public purse" and we aim to deliver high quality services and provide value for money by being fully accountable, honest, and open in everything that we do.

We recognise that fraud, bribery, and corruption undermine these aims by diverting resources from legitimate activities, damaging public confidence in the Council, adversely affecting staff morale and the standards of public service, which the council promotes.

We have a zero-tolerance approach to fraud and corruption to protect public funds and achieve its strategic priorities. The aim of this strategy is to ensure that the opportunity for fraud and corruption is reduced to the lowest possible risk and is designed to:

  • encourage prevention
  • promote detection
  • support investigation
  • deter others

This strategy is most relevant to the following:

  • elected members
  • employees
  • contractors
  • consultants
  • suppliers
  • service users
  • customers (including the public)
  • partner organisations
