Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to assess the real reasons behind the widely accepted view that the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) is not performing to its full potential.
Design/methodology/approach – The approach takes the form of consideration of the main points of the regulatory framework and analysis of lacunae in the current and proposed framework.
Findings – The paper attributes ineffectiveness, in part, to the conflicting and vague regulatory framework within which OLAF is requested to operate.
Originality/value – The paper provides a list and an analysis of the main lacunae in OLAF's regulatory framework, an operation which has been neglected in the academic literature.
