LGA and CIPFA publish fraud guidance
The Local Government Association (LGA) and the CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre have published useful guidance to mitigate the risk of fraud, bribery and corruption within the local government supply chain.
The guidance acts as a reminder of the continuing risks to supply chains posed by fraud and corruption, many of which are exacerbated by emergency circumstances.
The following points are emphasised in the guidance:
- If something looks too good to be true it probably is
- Make sure that you document all decisions
- Not everything needs to be procured urgently – don’t be pressurised
