Fraud prevention

Our work on fraud allows us to draw on our unique perspective to participate in the fight against fraud and reduce the cost of fraud to the UK economy. We have used our understanding of fraud risk across government to work with a range of stakeholders including the National Fraud Authority, the CIPFA Better Governance Forum and the Audit Commission.

We estimate the annual cost of fraud to the UK at more than £30 billion a year. We encourage the sharing of best practice and a wider understanding of the risks to be tackled as a way of working to mitigate the scale of these losses.
