CCDF Fraud Toolkit and Instructions

The CCDF Fraud Toolkit is an evolving resource designed to assist CCDF Lead Agencies in increasing program integrity and accountability and decreasing fraud within their child care programs. Provided by the National Center on Subsidy Innovation and Accountability (NCSIA), the Toolkit encompasses five separate evaluation sections: an overall Fraud Risk Assessment, and additional assessments for Prevention, Detection, Enforcement and Recovery, and Monitoring.

Each Toolkit has multiple categories, assessment questions, and helpful resources related to internal controls and fraud prevention strategies. CCDF Lead Agencies can assess their fraud risk levels by answering a series of questions. Each Toolkit provides assessment results and some basic next steps.

The available Fraud Toolkit sections are:

  • An overall Fraud Risk Assessment Tool
  • The Fraud Prevention Assessment Tool
  • The Fraud Detection Assessment Tool
  • Enforcement and Recovery Assessment Tool
  • Monitoring Assessment Tool

These resources are in Microsoft Excel format. To request a copy of the assessment tools, please email NCSIA at ncsia@ecetta.info
