It's Your Business - Chapter 7 Fraud Prevention and Control

As a director, it is important to understand the fraud and corruption risks that your organisation could face. Fraud and corruption can undermine the viability of non-government organisations, compromise the delivery of services and breach the trust of stakeholders. This chapter explores what fraud and corruption control is and how your organisation can take steps to prevent, detect and respond effectively to incidents of fraud and corruption.

The approach adopted in this chapter is based on the Australian Standard on Fraud and Corruption Control AS 8001:2008.

Policy checklists and other resources are included at the end of the chapter. These tools can be used by your Board to develop your fraud and corruption control framework, and on an ongoing basis as required.
