Fraud and risk certification

The Department has zero tolerance for fraud and takes all reasonable measures to deal with fraud matters.

The Department’s Fraud Control Framework aligns with the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework. It includes a fraud control plan, informed by assessments of fraud risk and complies with section 10 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014.

The Framework meets business needs and establishes the mechanisms for the prevention, detection, monitoring, evaluation and reporting of fraud matters for the Department.

To support the system of internal control, the Department recognises the importance of being vigilant in relation to fraud risk and communicate expectations of fraud awareness and prevention to staff.
