Annual fraud against the Commonwealth survey 2013


In October 2006 the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) was given responsibility for collecting and reporting information on fraud against the Commonwealth as required by the Commonwealth Fraud Control Guidelines. The current Commonwealth Fraud Control Guidelines 2011 provide that all Commonwealth agencies are required to provide the AIC with fraud control information which is used in the preparation of an annual report for the Minister for Home Affairs.

The 2012-13 online survey is now available for agencies to complete on a secure website. Heads of agencies have been sent a letter containing access information and a link to the secure website for the online survey. The link to complete the survey online is also provided below. A copy of the survey is also available here on the AIC website for preliminary viewing before completing the online version.

Agencies are asked to complete the survey online instead of providing a paper submission. If agencies wish to make a paper submission, please contact Penny Jorna, AIC Research Analyst at

The AIC would appreciate completion of the survey by close of business Tuesday, 01 October 2013.
