Annex A 
Dear Mr Elibank 
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 10 March 2011 in which you requested 
the following information: a full electronic copy of your Fraud Procedures and Instructions 
A copy of the information which can be disclosed is enclosed in the format you requested.  
Some information has been withheld as it falls under the exemptions in the Freedom of 
Information Act: 
Exclusion 31: Law Enforcement – this includes examples of how to commit fraud which could 
jeopardise investigations 
Exclusion 40: Personal data – this includes named contacts, their telephone numbers and 
email addresses 
In applying this exemption the department has balanced the public interest in withholding the 
information against the public interest in disclosing the information  
If you have any queries about this letter please contact me quoting the reference number 
Yours sincerely,  
DWP Central FoI Team
