2. Introduction

The Fraud and Corruption Control Plan (FCCP) documents the strategic and operational approach to controlling fraud and corruption within the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (the department). It provides an overview of how fraud and corruption risks will be managed and compiles with the requirements of the Commonwealth Fraud Control Framework (the Framework).

This FCCP has been prepared in accordance with the department’s obligations pursuant to the Framework which sits under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act). The PGPA Act is part of the broader Public Management Reform Agenda (PMRA) and is a move to a broad principles-based approach.

The Framework outlines the Australian Government’s requirements for fraud control and, including the need for government entities to put in place a comprehensive programme that covers prevention, detection, investigation and reporting strategies.

The Fraud Integrity Assurance Team is the independent internal assurance function responsible for the development and implementation of the FCCP.

This FCCP represents the department’s commitment to fraud control, and aims to minimise the potential for fraud enacted on the department’s programmes or activities by employees or people outside the department.
