Prevention of fraudulent invoices

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Bradford City Council,

I am making a request under the FOI Act.

What steps do you employ to prevent the payment of fraudulent invoices that have been raised in the name of existing suppliers (i.e. where a fraudster raises an invoice in the name of a company that is already a supplier but with the fraudster’s own bank details)?

I await your response within 20 working days.

Yours faithfully,

Helen McNally

Michelle Carroll, Bradford City Council
