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 as follows.

Fraud Rule

A legislative instrument binding all Commonwealth entities. It sets out the key requirements of fraud control. It can be found within the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework.

Fraud Control Policy

Binds non-corporate Commonwealth entities and sets out procedural requirements for specific areas of fraud control such as investigations and reporting. It can be found within the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework.

Fraud Guidance

Supports the Fraud Rule and Fraud Policy by setting out the government's expectations for fraud control arrangements within all Commonwealth entities (also known as the Resource Management Guide No. 201 - Preventing, detecting and dealing with fraud). It can be found within the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework.
