As required by section 10 and paragraph 17AG(2)(b) of the Public Governance, Performance and
Accountability Rule 2014
, I also certify that the AEC:

  • has prepared fraud risk assessments and a fraud control plan;
  • has in place appropriate mechanisms for preventing, detecting incidents of, investigating or otherwise dealing with, and recording or reporting fraud; and

Yours sincerely
