At the top of the page in white lettering over a medium blue background, are the words “Shine a light on cheating and fraudulent activity in federal contracts.”

The top half of the poster features a graphic of a bright pink flashlight being held in the hand of an anonymous person. The arm and hand of the person appear from the left side of the poster as if the anonymous person is reaching into the poster itself. The beam of the flashlight is being pointed to the right of the poster to illuminate a smaller graphic of a person in motion that is holding a large bright pink dollar sign. The person looks as if they are running away.

Along the middle of the poster, underneath the flashlight graphic are the words “Report it anonymously!” in white lettering and highlighted by a bright pink background. Underneath this text the website address is printed in white lettering, “www.canada.ca/report-contract-fraud”.

The bottom half of the poster lists and describes the types of cheating and fraudulent activity in federal contracts using circular icons and white text against the same medium blue background:

  • Bid-rigging: Secretly agreeing on bids with competing suppliers to manipulate the outcome of a procurement process.
  • Conflict of interest: Awarding contracts improperly or in a non-competitive way for personal gain.
  • Price fixing: Agreeing with competing suppliers to raise or fix prices charged for goods or services.
  • Bribery: Offering or giving something of value to a government employee to influence a contract decision.
  • False invoicing: Billing for goods or services that were not actually provided.
  • Product switching: Secretly providing inferior products.

At the very bottom of the poster, the Government of Canada wordmark and logo appear in medium print against a darker blue background.
