About the Counter Fraud Centre

The 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.

Building on CIPFA’s 130 year history of championing excellence in public finance management, we offer training and a range of products and services to help organisations detect, prevent and recover fraud losses.

In the fight against fraud and corruption, working closely with others is essential and we regularly collaborate with the City of London Police, the Local Government Association (LGA), the National Crime Agency (NCA), Cabinet Office, NHS Protect and the National Audit Office (NAO).

We lead on the national counter fraud and anti-corruption strategy for local government, ‘Fighting Fraud and Corruption Locally’ and were named in the UK Government’s 2014 Anti-Corruption plan as having a key role to play in combatting corruption, both within the UK and abroad.

We also conduct the annual CIPFA Fraud and Corruption Tracker (CFaCT), the national overview of all fraud, bribery and corruption activity throughout the UK public sector.

The Centre is headed up by Rachael Tiffen, former Deputy Director of the National Fraud Authority.
