Reporting a Fraud

The SEUPB is committed to combating fraud and corruption and has adopted a proactive, structured and targeted approach to address all four aspects of the fraud cycle - Prevention, Detection, Corrections and Prosecution.

We have implemented a fraud strategy which includes our Anti-Fraud Policy and Reporting Concerns at Work (Whistleblowing) Policy and have implemented an anti-fraud training programme for SEUPB staff and programme beneficiaries. A team of staff have also completed specialist Anti-Fraud and Investigative Practice training in order to manage reports of fraudulent activity.

Any attempt to defraud the EU budget is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. If you, as a person involved in an EU project, or as a member of the public, wish to raise a concern about how PEACE IV or INTERREG VA funding has been or is being used, particularly if the concern relates to alleged impropriety, wrongdoing, corruption, fraud or malpractice you are encouraged to contact us.

The SEUPB recognises that the decision to report a concern can be difficult therefore you might find it helpful to read our Frequently Asked Questions and Case Studies before you contact us.

Suspected fraud should be marked 'Private and Confidential' and reported to the Head of Corporate Finance and Corporate Services using the following contact details:
