All governmental entities have fraud risks. But exposures in procurement and contracting often top the list of what can go wrong – including the possibility that third-party suppliers and contractors will take unfair advantage of the relationship, entice our employees into questionable practices, and commit wrongful acts or outright fraud.
In this two-hour program we’ll look at how to audit for wrongdoing, theft and fraud in government procurement & contracting transactions and relationships. We’ll analyze audit lessons from past, current and emerging risks. Then examine real-world cases as the foundation of how auditors can build their fraud assessment results right into detection-focused audit programs steps. Short on theory and deep into practical ideas, the program will give participants the tools and techniques they need “on the job”.
