Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework
This framework outlines the Australian Government's requirements for fraud control. It requires that government entities put in place a comprehensive fraud control program that covers prevention, detection, investigation and reporting strategies. The three key documents in the Framework are the:
- Fraud Rule which is a legislative instrument binding all Commonwealth entities. It sets out the key requirements of fraud control
- Fraud Control Policy which binds non-corporate Commonwealth entities and sets out procedural requirements for specific areas of fraud control such as investigations and reporting
- Fraud Guidance (also known as the Resource Management Guide No. 201 - Preventing, detecting and dealing with fraud) which supports the Fraud Rule and Fraud Policy by setting out the government's expectations for fraud control arrangements within all Commonwealth entities.
