Salary Overpayments Benchmarking

Employee costs are one of the largest areas of expenditure for public sector organisations. Controls are needed to ensure payments made to employees are accurate and overpayments are avoided. Where overpayments do occur, controls should be in place to identify and recover them promptly.

360 Assurance, Audit Yorkshire and MIAA are three NHS Internal Audit consortia and we have worked collaboratively to review the salary overpayments data submitted by a broad range of providers across our constituent regions and draw out some key messages and questions for organisations to consider.
