CIPFA Fraud and Corruption Tracker

A truly national overview of all fraud, bribery and corruption activity throughout the UK public sector.

The CIPFA Fraud and Corruption Tracker (CFaCT) gives a national picture of fraud, bribery and corruption in the UK’s public sector and the actions being taken to prevent it. It aims to:

  • help organisations understand where fraud losses could be occurring
  • provide a guide to the value of detected and prevented fraud loss
  • help senior leaders understand the value of anti-fraud activity
  • assist operational staff to develop pro-active anti-fraud plans.

The CFaCT survey builds on the former Annual Fraud and Corruption Survey delivered by the Audit Commission and has been expanded to include questions commissioned by the Fighting Fraud and Corruption Locally Board and the Home Office.

2017 survey - deadline extended to 23 June 

Public sector organisations across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are invited to complete the 2017 survey by 23 June.
