Fraud Prevention

The Commission’s Fraud Control Plan, developed and managed in line with section 10 of the PGPA Rule 2014 and the Commonwealth Fraud Control Policy, was reviewed in 2018–19. General training on our fraud control processes is provided to staff annually.

The National Mental Health Commission CEO certifies that she is satisfied that the Commission:

  • has prepared a fraud and corruption risk assessment and fraud control plan
  • has in place appropriate fraud prevention, detection, investigation, reporting and data collection procedures and processes that meet the specific needs of the agency
  • has taken all reasonable measures to minimise the incidence of fraud in the agency, and investigate and recover the proceeds of fraud against the agency.

There were no instances of fraud in 2018–2019.
