The Department keeps Risk Registers at various levels in the organisation. These risk registers are designed to ensure that key risks are captured, monitored and mitigated.

I can confirm that Universal Credit advances fraud is recorded on Departmental risk registers as explained in the 16th October 2019 letter from the Department to the Honourable Member.
