The Fraud Prevention Conference 2016
Protecting the public sector from error and fraud
Fraud costs public services around £21 billion every year, money that should be invested, in this time of continued budget cuts, into improving those services for the people they serve. The government has released a variety of strategies to combat this problem, including the Fraud and Error Reduction Incentivise Scheme (FERIS) and Fighting Fraud & Corruption Locally 2016 – 2019 (The local government counter fraud and corruption strategy).
These recent updates encourage local authorities to move away from a reactionary approach to fraud, where a large budget is provided to identify and punish fraud after it has happened, towards an approach focused on prevention.
Join us for The Fraud Prevention Summit and Exhibition 2016: Protecting the public sector from error and fraud for exclusive insights from experts in fraud prevention practice and policy on the following topics:
Acknowledge – What measures can assist local authorities in acknowledging fraud risks, understanding their impact, and providing resources to combat the issues?
Prevent – How can local authorities make better use of technology to enhance fraud controls and processes, and ultimately create an effective anti-fraud culture?
Pursue – What role should pursing and punishing fraudsters play in local authority anti-fraud strategies, and how can these measures be made more efficient?
