The Counter-Fraud Toolkit is a collection of HE-specific, counter-fraud resources produced by the Counter-Fraud Working Group and a range of collaborators from across the sector.

It is offered on a creative commons license, which means it can be edited, copied, photocopied, and redistributed for use within your institution.

The toolkit will be expanded as new resources are produced. Click on the links below to download the current resources individually, or to download the complete toolkit as a whole.
