Ibec submission to the DSP control and fraud initiative
Ibec welcomes the fact that the Department has commenced work on the formulation of a new a control and fraud initiative for the period 2014 to 2017 and that the Department is seeking to consult and obtain the views of business as part of this process. It is Ibec’s position that in times of fiscal constraint initiatives such as this can help reduce costs for the state, play a role in reducing disincentives to work and make Ireland a more attractive place to do business. In the following document Ibec addresses three key areas where the control and fraud initiative may interact with business interests:
1. Social welfare overpayment
2. The DSP and Employers
3. The role of technology and the private sector in control and fraud
