Procurement Fraud

The NHSCFA has produced a series of eight fraud prevention quick guides focusing on specific areas of fraud risk vulnerability in NHS finance and procurement.

Procurement accounts for a significant amount of NHS spend and activity, and procurement fraud is one of the NHSCFA's priority action areas for the 2019-20 financial year.

The purpose of the guides is to reduce the NHS’s vulnerability to procurement fraud by helping organisations to embed control measures and implement preventative action.

Each quick guide covers the following topics:

  • Brief summary of the fraud risk
  • How to spot fraud
  • How to stop fraud from happening
  • How to report suspicions of fraud

The guides can be found by following this link.
