England’s counter fraud and corruption strategy for local government
The Fighting Fraud and Corruption Locally 2016–2019 strategy has been developed by local authorities and counter fraud experts.
It is the definitive guide for council leaders, chief executives, finance directors and all those with governance responsibilities.
The strategy includes practical steps for fighting fraud, shares best practice and brings clarity to the changing anti-fraud and corruption landscape.

The production and implementation of the strategy is overseen by the Fighting Fraud and Corruption Locally board, which includes representation from key stakeholders.
The board commissioned the drafting and publication of the strategy from the CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre. The Centre hosts Fighting Fraud and Corruption Locally, manages the secretariat and holds the Fighting Fraud and Corruption Locally Good Practice Bank.
This builds upon Fighting Fraud Locally 2011 in the light of developments such as the Serious and Organised Crime Strategy and the first UK Anti-Corruption Plan.
The Good Practice Bank features a wide range of case studies, tools and guidance and is available free of charge to local government employees. If you are already registered or your organisation subscribes to the Counter Fraud Centre, please click on 'Go to the Bank' below.
