Summer Academy: Combating Fraud and Corruption in the Public Sector
Prevent • Detect • Act
Fraud and corruption in the public sector heavily harm the economy, lower investment levels and negatively impact public finances. Anti-fraud and anti-corruption strategies are often not effective enough. Damages done to public institutions and their budgets by fraud and corruption can be enormous ranging from financial loss to reduction of organisational performance, reputation, credibility and public confidence. It is therefore necessary that public staff responsible for preventing, detecting and combating fraud and corruption are well trained and have the necessary knowledge and tools they need to protect the integrity of their public institution. Good risk management as well as prevention, detection and control systems represent a constant challenge for every public sector authority. There is a need for more effective control instruments, reporting mechanisms, investigation methods and best practices.
Detecting fraud and corruption and making sure that it cannot be repeated is not solely the responsibility of anti-fraud officials and auditors. Without the cooperation of public officials working in high risk areas, it is very difficult to detect malpractice and illegitimate personal gain. Therefore, it is up to all levels of hierarchy in public institutions to create an environment of transparency, ethical conduct and accountability in order to prevent and combat fraud and corruption.

Experienced anti-fraud practitioners will explain different types of malpractice and environments that make them possible.
