This report focuses on the public-sector fraud landscape in central government, and the levels of fraud and error loss outside of the tax and welfare system.

In this report, we focus on the 2016-17 loss trends, and highlight the work that we are doing to find more fraud through raising standards and improving capability.

We also report on the key activity from 2017-18, as led by the Cabinet Office Centre of Expertise for Counter Fraud including:

  • the progress we are making to build and increase counter fraud capability in government
  • how government organisations are progressing against the functional standards for counter fraud
  • how we continue to find fraud in new areas where little is known
  • how we are using data to better find and prevent fraud
  • how we are working with overseas governments to share best practice on countering fraud and economic crime
