Fraud Response Plans

We're waiting for SH Bell to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Aberdeenshire Council,

I am a current PhD student researching fraudulent misconducts involving employees within Scottish local authorities since the introduction of the Bribery Act 2010. My area of interest relates to departments involved in the construction of new buildings, and in the repairs & maintenance of existing properties within your local authority.
I therefore would be most grateful if you would provide me with the following information to the questions listed below.
Many thanks in advance.

SH Bell

1) Does your fraud response plan specifically address the fraud risks that apply to the departments dealing with the construction of new buildings and in the repairs & maintenance of existing properties, or has your council adopted a uniform anti-fraud and corruption policy across all departments of the council? Please would you provide a copy of your policy ?

2) Do you have a clear unambiguous policy in relation to conflict of interest and gifts and hospitality, and if so, please would you provide a copy?

3) How many allegations of fraud involving an employee has your authority received in the following periods, and how many were found to be substantiated?

2011
2012
2013
2014
2015
2016
2017
2018

Acknowledge email, Aberdeenshire Council
