Yellow skilled people card

Around 10,000 people across central government work to protect public services and fight economic crime. On 9 October, the Government showed its commitment to fighting fraud, and to the specialists who lead us in this fight, by launching the Government Counter Fraud Profession.

The aim of this Discovery Session is to promote the Government Counter Fraud Profession and to connect government departments ensuring awareness and compliance with the Functional Standards for Counter Fraud, Bribery and Corruption.

To highlight this we will be running a ‘taster day’ of various counter fraud initiatives and policies to Scottish civil servants cascading the message of fraud being everyone’s responsibility.

David Whitehouse-Hayes Cabinet office: Head of Government Counter Fraud Profession Policy and Engagement, will be joined by Craig Martin who will further increase awareness of the counter fraud function and professionalisation agenda and how these can start to be implemented across government.

Don’t worry if you don’t work in fraud; fighting fraud is everyone’s responsibility. Refresh your counter fraud knowledge by re-visiting the counter fraud, bribery and corruption training, for all staff here, and for managers here

Where: DWP Laurieston, Glasgow, G41 1 PW

When: Tuesday 19 March 2019

Time: 10am to 3.30pm

    Great to see our first Counter Fraud Profession discovery in CS Local Scotland and hope for this new profession, it helps galvanise relationships across departments.

    Fantastic idea for a knowledge-share session on a really key area of HMG. Would be great to see one of these in South (West!)

    A great professional event with lots of interaction with colleagues across government. It was a real opportunity to network and share our experiences to help prevent and protect the public purse. Our common goal!
