This quarter, we continued to help entities build their counter fraud capability by running workshops, hosting networking events and providing direct support.

We also received a 4 year funding extension that will allow us to continue helping entities to build their counter fraud capability for the foreseeable future.

We conducted a recruitment round to fill 8 positions within the Centre. The new team members are expected to start in August and September.

From April to June 2021, we built the capability of individual officers by running:

  • 2 fraud risk assessment executive level workshops
  • 2 narrative workshops
  • the 2021 Data Analytics Conference
  • a pressure testing adoption workshop.

We continued to connect with stakeholders and share our challenges and best practice through:

  • the Commonwealth Senior Officers Fraud Forum meeting
  • a pressure testing community of practice meeting
  • a fraud risk assessment community of practice meeting.

We developed new materials including:

  • the Counter Fraud Podcast with IPAA
  • 15 new case studies for our case studies register
  • a submission to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Law Enforcement Inquiry into vaccine fraud and security risks.

We provided support for:

  • entities through providing one-on-one advice on how to embed leading practice
  • the Department of Health to assess fraud risks in the roll-out of the COVID-19 Vaccine Program
  • the US Pandemic Response Accountability Committee to coordinate an International Data Forum on Pandemic Response Oversight.
