Counter Fraud Centre

Welcome to the CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre - providing the tools, training and ideas to shape the future of counter fraud

Counter Fraud Centre Timeline

Public services fraud costs the taxpayer an estimated £21 billion a year. Resources are stretched and organisations like the National Fraud Authority and the Audit Commission have closed. With fraudsters becoming increasingly sophisticated, all public services organisations are more vulnerable than ever to criminal activity.

The CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre was launched in 2014 to lead and coordinate the fight against fraud and corruption across local and central government, the health, education and charity sectors.
