Reporting fraud

Fraud against the Commonwealth is a serious matter. Fraud can decrease the available public funds to deliver goods and services and in turn undermine the public's confidence in the Government.

We are committed to minimising the incidence of fraud against our operations and will not tolerate any fraudulent practices. Our staff are expected to take their responsibilities as stewards of public funds seriously and make every effort to protect public money and property.

We have defined fraud as: ‘dishonestly obtaining a benefit, or causing a loss, by deception or other means’.

We take fraud seriously and have controls in place to prevent and detect instances of fraud. If fraud does occur it is investigated, appropriately prosecuted and any loss recovered.
