Counter Fraud Code of Practice Assessment Tool


The Better Governance Forum and CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre have developed a unique Assessment Tool, specifically designed to help you measure your arrangements against the Code of Practice on Managing the Risk of Fraud and Corruption.

Interactive, accessible and easy to use, it is available in Excel.








Add to basket

CIPFA launched the Code of Practice on Managing the Risk of Fraud and Corruption in October 2014. Since then it has gained support from external auditors and government departments as well as leading counter fraud practitioners.

Our Assessment Tool will enable you to:

  • evaluate your performance against the counter fraud code
  • generate reports and graphs to illustrate your performance against the code
  • view examples of good practice to help inform your assessment
  • record comments, providing a robust evidence base for the assessment
  • share and track progress with your team
  • support your governance statement and inform your development plans.

Technical details

The Assessment Tool requires you to have Excel 2010 or newer to ensure optimum performance. If you are using Excel 2003 or 2007, you will experience loss of functionality.

The Tool will be sent via email to the person who makes the purchase, soon after payment has been received. It will be personalised with the name of your organisation.

Full instructions on how to use and get the most from the Tool are contained within the Tool itself, together with a set of frequently asked questions. Our contact details are also included, in case you have further queries.

If your organisation subscribes to either the Better Governance Forum or the CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre, the Tool will be automatically sent to your organisation’s main contact on subscribing, free of charge.
