FED DEPARTMENT JUST AS BAD
SUSPECTED frauds have more than doubled in five months.
The federal government is investigating 2444 cases where two or more installers have sought payments for insulating the same household under its botched insulation scheme. The claims are worth an estimated $3.3 million.
The number of cases being investigated has increased from 961 in May.
The department also revealed that as of October 20 -- eight months after the insulation program ended -- 798 installers who had lodged claims for payment under the scheme were still waiting to be paid.
These are businesses being investigated for fraud and compliance issues, as well as businesses that have incorrectly lodged invoices or are missing required information.
Consultants KPMG have been hired by the government to analyse fraud in the home insulation program.
The cost of this work has blown out by about 40 per cent because of the poor quality of data kept by the department and the volume of information required to be analysed.
The house fires and deaths are being investigated by the relevant authorities.
Culpability should be shared by shonkey operators and the relevant State Bureaucracies who had next to no regulations for installing these types of insulation.
Below are the guidelines for installing insulation
they must be strictly adhered to at all times.
