Annual fraud against the Commonwealth survey 2014


In October 2006 the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) was given responsibility for collecting and reporting on fraud against the Commonwealth as required by the, then, Commonwealth Fraud Control Guidelines and now in accordance with the Commonwealth Fraud Control Policy. The Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act) and section 10 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014 (PGPA Rule) require all non-corporate Commonwealth entities are required to provide the AIC with fraud control information which is used in the preparation of an annual report for the Minister for Justice.

The 2013-14 online survey is now available for entities to complete on a secure website. Entity heads have been sent a letter containing access information and a link to the secure website for the online survey. The link to complete the survey online is also below. A copy of the survey is also available here on the AIC website for viewing before completing the online version.

Entities are asked to complete the survey online instead of providing a paper submission. If entities wish to make a paper submission, please contact Penny Jorna, AIC Research Analyst at

The AIC would appreciate completion of the survey by Tuesday, 30 September 2014.
