Information about Counter Fraud work at Lincolnshire County Council, including use of powers, employees and fraud cases. This information is published as part of the Local Government Transparency Code.
Please note that a fraud referral may be made (shown in the dataset under Fraud identified) but not investigated (see Fraud Investigated). For instance, there may be a lack of evidence, a reasonable explanation provided or management action may be taken following preliminary enquiries. Therefore, fraud investigated will usually be less than fraud identified.
Also, figures for fraud and figures for irregularities are likely to be identical, as they are in practice not categorised any differerently.
