Fraud, Bribery and Corruption Survey 2012

A report on the key findings


New Zealand businesses are too complacent about the growing risk of bribery and corruption. Fraud continues to be a growing problem in New Zealand.


One organisation surveyed in our latest Fraud, Bribery and Corruption Survey suffered a $1.5m loss resulting from ‘inappropriate selection of third party distributors’. 


The total value lost to fraud is trending upwards, having increased by more than 7% since the 2008 survey.


Although the 140 New Zealand survey respondents reported relatively few incidents of bribery and corruption, the level of complacency around the risks gives most cause for concern.


More than 38% of survey respondents did not have clear anti-bribery and corruption policies and procedures in place.
