Management of fraud risk

The AOFM has a minimal appetite for fraud, and has taken comprehensive steps to prevent the occurrence of fraud. These include the application of a fraud control plan and processes and systems to ensure regular identification, assessment and treatment of fraud risk vulnerabilities. Mandatory annual fraud awareness training is provided to all staff and is also provided to new staff on induction. The AOFM’s approach to fraud risk management complies with the PGPA Act and Rule and the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework.

The AOFM reports fraud information annually to the responsible minister and the Australian Institute of Criminology. For 2019–20, the AOFM did not identify any instances of fraud or suspected fraud.
