Overview

Fraud and corruption dramatically harm the economy, public finances as well as the reputation and credibility of the institutions involved. With the use of new technologies, fraudsters encounter more complex forms and practices of fraud and corruption, which are hardly traceable. Controls and audits, especially if not set up or performed effectively, are cost-intensive and lengthy. Institutions must be aware of these risks and need to implement proactive measures and tools to effectively prevent and detect fraud and corruption. First level controllers, (risk) managers and auditors need to be aware of preventive and detective measures and anti-fraud and anti-corruption strategies. Public institutions should enable and empower their employees to understand the principles and signals of fraud and corruption, should know how to report them and should be conscious of their impact.

We are happy to present this one-off and very speacial edition of the Anti-Fraud and Corruption Game by Jo Kremers, which has the motto: “a day without laughter is a day wasted”. This advanced level training is a highly interactive and engaging game, which was developed with the aim to build the capacity of EU Funds Authorities to prevent, detect and combat fraud and corruption at different stages. This game was created by Jo Kremers, former Senior Audit Manager in the Dutch Ministry of Finance, using his extensive experience as auditor and fraud investigator for the private and public sectors.  This training refers a lot to one of the Assessment Criteria of the Key Requirement 7, which says, that “training and awareness raising actions, data analytics and up-to-date awareness of fraud warning signs and fraud indicators” are crucial for the effective implementation of proportionate anti-fraud measures.

Unlike classical trainings, which mostly focus on the EU laws and regulations with a set of ready-to-use anti-fraud measures, this training encourages and motivates participants to develop their ability to recognise red flags of fraud and corruption by being more attentive and responsive to hints of fraud. This early awareness allow them to chosse the most appropriate and effective anti-fraud control measures.

The Anti-Fraud and Corruption Game by Jo Kremers was awarded by the European Commission as a Good Practice in capacity building for prevention, detection and correction of Fraud and Corruption for all EU Funds Authorities.
