CIPFA, the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, has welcomed the launch of the UK’s first ever anti-corruption plan issued today by the Home Office. The anti-corruption plan names CIPFA’s Counter Fraud Centre (CFC) as the provider of counter fraud and counter-corruption tools for both local authorities and the public sector.
CIPFA’s CFC will now work to aid the Home Office in helping public services protect themselves from fraud, corruption and other crime by providing training and toolkits that place an emphasis on greater prevention and smarter enforcement.
Rachael Tiffin, head of CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre, said on the Home Office’s announcement:
“It is welcome news that the Home Office have launched an anti-corruption plan that will be instrumental in cracking down on fraud and corruption in the public sector. CIPFA are delighted that we have been recognised for having the right tools and training to tackle complex risks facing local authorities and the public sector.”
