Call for Nominations issued by organisers of 2020 Tackling Economic Crime Awards

27 May 2020

THE ENTRY process for the 2020 Tackling Economic Crime Awards (TECAs) is now open. The TECAs is an independent awards scheme launched last year by Perpetuity Research in a determined bid to recognise and reward teams, individuals, initiatives and organisations for their commitment and outstanding performance in tackling all areas of economic crime. Security Matters is the Official Media Partner for this year's event.

The TECAs are designed to be both independent and inclusive, in turn providing an opportunity for outstanding performers, whether buyers or suppliers, to be recognised and their success to be celebrated.

The criteria for these awards are based on extensive research around key factors that contribute towards and characterise outstanding performance. Importantly, the TECAs were established in collaboration with relevant associations and groups in order to demonstrate credibility and transparency. Those associations and groups include the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, the Cabinet Office, Cifas, the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, the City of London Police, the Fraud Advisory Panel, the London Fraud Forum, the North East Fraud Forum, the NHS Counter Fraud Authority, the Royal United Services Institute, the Serious Fraud Office and UK Finance.

Entries for the 2020 TECAs are open until Tuesday 1 September 2020 and nominations are invited in 15 categories. Anyone working in the UK and presently operating in the public, private or third sectors is eligible to submit an entry.

The 15 categories are as follows: Outstanding Manager/Director, Outstanding Team, Outstanding Consultant, Outstanding Customer Service Initiative, Outstanding Training Initiative, Outstanding New Product, Outstanding Partnership, Outstanding Investigator, Outstanding Young Professional, Outstanding Female Professional, Outstanding Male Professional, Outstanding Prevention Initiative and the Lifetime Achievement Award.

For a full listing of the 2019 winners visit https://thetecas.com/2019-winners/. The lead sponsor for the 2019 event was Altia-ABM.

Once again, a panel of leading industry figures will select winners from the finalists and the awards will be presented at the end of this year at a glittering ceremony to be held in central London. Last year's Judging Panel included Mike Astley (head of NAFN Data and Intelligence Services), Robert Brooker (head of fraud and forensics at PKF Littlejohn LLP and chair of the London Fraud Forum), Professor Mark Button (director of the Centre for Counter Fraud Studies at the University of Portsmouth) and Commissioner Ian Dyson QPM of the City of London Police (the lead force for tackling fraud here in the UK).

If you, your company or someone you know has performed at an exceptional level (and especially so during these unprecedented times), then make a point of shining a light on that great work.
