CABI requires all staff at all times to act honestly and with integrity and to safeguard CABI‟s assets.
Fraud is an ever-present threat to these assets and hence must be a concern to all members of staff as well as to management. Fraud may occur internally or externally and may be perpetrated by staff, consultants, suppliers, contractors or development partners, individually or in collusion with others.
The purpose of this document is to set out the responsibilities with regard to fraud prevention, what to do if you suspect fraud and the action that will be taken by management.
