Dear Blackpool Borough Council,

How many investigators are in your corporate fraud investigation team?
Do you have a case management system used by the fraud investigation team?
If so who supplies it and what is the name of the system?
When does the contractual agreement to use the software expire?
What is the annual cost to use the system?

If you do not have a fraud investigation team, can you please inform me if you are part of a shared fraud investigation team, or if your fraud investigations are outsourced?
If they are outsourced can you please inform me who the fraud investigation is outsourced to?

For avoidance of doubt, I am making these requests under the Freedom of Information Act. I await your response within 20 working days.

Yours faithfully,

T Gregory

FOI, Blackpool Borough Council
