Policy on Fraud

The HSE requires all employees at all times to act honestly and with integrity and to safeguard the public resources for which the HSE is responsible. Fraud and corruption are ever-present threats to these resources and hence must be a concern to all employees. Fraud and/or corruption may occur internally or externally and may be perpetrated by staff, service users, suppliers or contractors, individually or in collusion with others.

The purpose of this document is to set out employees' responsibilities with regard to prevention of fraud and corruption, what to do if fraud and/or corruption is suspected and the action that will be taken by management.
