Fraud risk management Download the full report


Tabled in Parliament on 19 March 2013.


A recent survey reported that more than one third of public sector organisations had experienced fraud. Another survey reported that, in the second half of 2011, the Australian public sector experienced more than 20 major frauds costing nearly $60 million.


This audit examined whether selected Queensland public sector agencies are effectively managing fraud risks. We used recognised best practice criteria to assess the control measures in three agencies for preventing, detecting and responding to fraud.
