The Democratic and Electoral Services Manager
presented the reference from the Audit Governance and Standards
Committee recommending that Policy and Resources Committee approve
the Counter Fraud and Corruption Policy with one minor
amendment. The Committee noted that
a number of the alterations and
suggestions for the document had come from external members of the
Audit Governance and Standards committee and requested that their
thanks be noted.
RESOLVED: That the Counter Fraud and
Corruption Policy be approved with the word ‘may’ being
replaced with ‘will, unless there are exceptional
circumstances’ in paragraph 17 of the policy.
