Minutes:

The committee considered the updated counter fraud and corruption strategy 2021-2024.

 

It was noted that the committee had considered a draft document at its meeting on 26 January 2021 (minute 45 of 2020/21 refers) and the revisions that had been made in response to the recommended actions identified by the committee were explained in detail.

 

Attention was drawn to the fraud response flowchart (agenda page 75) and it was commented that ‘consider lessons learned’ was just as important for a successful outcome as for an unsuccessful outcome.  It was agreed that the flowchart would be adjusted accordingly.

 

RESOLVED:  That, subject to the identified adjustment to the fraud response flowchart, the updated Counter Fraud and Corruption Strategy 2021-2024, as attached at appendix A to the report, be agreed.
