New Commonwealth Fraud and Corruption Control Framework

The Minister for Finance and the Attorney-General have announced the new Commonwealth Fraud and Corruption Control Framework which will come into effect on 1 July 2024.

This follows the recent amendments to section 10 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability (PGPA) Rule 2014 (the Fraud Rule) to include corruption, and strengthen the requirements for Commonwealth entities to prevent, detect and deal with fraud and corruption. These amendments will become the Fraud and Corruption Rule.

To reflect these amendments, the Attorney-General’s Department (AGD) has updated the Fraud Policy and is revising Resource Management Guidance 201 – Preventing, detecting and dealing with fraud. AGD will also be providing a range of additional resources and briefings to help entities enhance their counter fraud and anti-corruption arrangements in line with the new framework.

For more information about the new framework and additional support available, go to the Commonwealth Fraud and Corruption Control Framework page.
