Fraud and error can undermine policy goals and objectives by diverting public funds from their intended purposes. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, governments estimated a high level of fraud and error. Three years later, governments have estimated even higher levels of fraud and fraud risks, particularly in areas of high volume and accelerated spending that are naturally prone to fraud, such as social benefit programmes, procurement, and aid for businesses. This session will explore lessons learned in the wake of the pandemic and how integrity and accountability actors can prepare for future crises.
