This study was funded by the Department for International Development (DiFD) and examined the potential for Fraud Measurement exercises in dispensing international aid. Working in a challenging and changing environment DiFD sought a system and method of measurement that reduces losses to fraud and development of counter fraud capacity. The research demonstrated that measurement exercise(s) should focus on specific elements of dispensing international aid in measuring fraud; these were administration; direct purchasing and NGOs receiving aid, with future work suggested on developing resilience checks for overseas aid, and the creation of a model for predicting range of fraud losses.
