“From the Government Counter Fraud Function. “Fraud against public bodies takes money away from the vital public services that citizens rely on and can damage trust in government. The estimated fraud cost to the government outside of the tax and welfare system is £2.5- £25bn per year. This increases to £29.3bn-£52bn when fraud against the tax and welfare system is included.
We aim to be the most transparent government globally in how we deal with public sector fraud. As such, we are publishing this bulletin to demonstrate our commitment to transparency and openness.
