City of Gainesville's Fraud Risk Management Policy

The Office of the City Auditor has published the city’s first Fraud Risk Management Policy.

The policy provides guidelines for the development, implementation and monitoring of internal controls that aid in fraud detection and prevention.

  • (a) Prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse (defined in s. 11.45(1)) here.
