Protecting against fraud and corruption
Council is the custodian of significant public funds and assets, and it is important that the community has assurance that these public funds and assets are adequately protected from fraud and corruption.
Council's Fraud Control Policy is in place to:
- protect the public funds and assets
- protect the integrity, security and reputation of Eurobodalla Shire Council and its staff
- maintain a high level of service to the community
- aid in the detection and prevention of fraud against the Council
- create a culture of awareness that fraud and corruption will not be tolerated.
