NAO guide offers help on catching fraudsters

The National Audit Office and the Treasury have jointly launched a guide aimed at helping government bodies crack down on external fraudsters.

Link: Fraud cases almost double

Good Practice in Tackling External Fraud highlights the way in which different government organisations work to combat and detect fraud by outsiders against public funds.

The types of frauds covered range from individuals taking the opportunity to make small gains to organised crime groups carrying out premeditated systematic attacks for large sums of money.

The guide advises departments to consider whether they need to develop a package of measures specifically tailored to each type of fraud but acknowledges there is much value in promoting a wider understanding of how other bodies tackle fraud and the good practices which are successful elsewhere.

The guide can be downloaded at www.nao.org.uk/pn/03-04/0304tacklingfraud.htm
