Anti-Fraud, Bribery and Corruption Framework

The council has a duty, in law and morally, to protect the public funds it administers and act in a way that protects those funds. Fraud, bribery, corruption and dishonesty (whilst rare) adversely affects the council's reputation and its ability to achieve its objectives through the diversion of the council's limited resources from the provision of service to the people of Doncaster.

Doncaster Council does not tolerate fraud, bribery or corruption and will take steps to investigate and take action against it where it is detected.  The council has a documented Anti-Fraud, Bribery and Corruption Framework that sets out the council's stance on fraud and outlines the steps that it will take in response to fraud, bribery and corruption.

The framework (downloadable below), sets out the roles and responsibilities for key staff in the tackling of fraud affecting Doncaster Council but every member of staff has responsibilities under the framework.

Anti-fraud and Corruption Framework documents:

These documents remain current and valid but are timetabled for review in 2021 due to changes in best practice guidance.  Revised versions of these policies will be published in May 2021 after approval at Audit Committee.
