Dealing with Fraud in a Small Business
It was with great interest that I read the Australian Institute of Criminology’s Fraud against the Commonwealth report 2009-2010 annual report to the Government.
It takes many months to compile these reports and therefore there is always a lag period between the period of the report and the time they are actually published.
When reading the report I identified a number of important points in relation to fraud prevention and fraud prevention systems.
Fraud still regularly occurs against the Commonwealth both internally and externally. The federal government employs many highly trained and experienced investigators and managers and is extremely proactive when it comes to the reduction of fraud yet it still experiences fraud.
