Fighting Fraud in the Public Sector II

PwC has released Fighting Fraud in the Public Sector II, based on the Australian results of its 6th Global Economic Crime Survey. The survey, conducted in conjunction with INSEAD Business, has been conducted every two years since 1999 and in Australia since 2001. It is one of the largest and most comprehensive surveys of its kind. The global and Australian surveys were last released in 2009.

Fighting Fraud in the Public Sector I, released in June 2011, focused on fraud risk frameworks and proactive fraud prevention and detection strategies. This publication continues the focus on prevention and detection but also highlights the two biggest risks facing government organisations – procurement fraud and the emerging.

This edition of the publication provides valuable insight and advice on:
  • The rising threat of cybercrime
  • Increase in reliance on technology
  • Escalating significance and impact of increasing economic crime
  • Cyber security mechanisms and their importance.
We hope the information within this report will provide valuable insight and practical advice on how organisations within the Public Sector can continue their efforts to combat fraud and other economic crimes.
