COVID-19: protecting the local government sector supply chain from fraud

Joint guidance from the LGA and the CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre.


In times of emergency there is a need to respond quickly but to also ensure continued vigilance against the risks of fraud, bribery and corruption. This guidance acts as a reminder of the continuing risks to supply chains posed by fraud and corruption, many of which are exacerbated by emergency circumstances.

Key points

  • If something looks too good to be true it probably is
  • Make sure that you document all decisions
  • Not everything needs to be procured urgently – don’t be pressurised
