IPSFF Fraud Control Testing Framework
This International Public Sector Fraud Forum (IPSFF) Fraud Control Testing Framework was produced in collaboration with the United Kingdom’s Public Sector Fraud Authority and the Commonwealth Fraud Prevention Centre. It sets out recommended best practice, key principles and materials for conducting fraud control testing within Australian Government entities.

Strategic Fraud Risk Profiling tool
Conducting fraud control testing across multiple schemes and functions delivered by a public body can be complex, time consuming and difficult to prioritise. Strategic-level fraud risk profiling can assist public bodies to identify those areas of the organisation that are more susceptible to fraud risk. This will enable them to formulate a ‘heat-map’ for fraud risk across the public body and implement fraud control testing activities on a prioritised basis. Visit the Fraud Risk Assessment Guidance and Tools page for access to the tool.
Business Process Mapping template
This template provides the tools to help fraud control testers work with stakeholders to visualise the business processes. It also provides instructions on how to map business processes and apply a fraud lens to identify vulnerabilities in the process, expanding on information in Chapter 8 of the IPSFF Fraud Control Testing Framework.
Email and reporting templates and planners
These templates provide tools to help fraud control testers to plan, run, report and communicate fraud control tests.
