Fraud is alive and well – learn to detect and prevent
Boards, administrators, auditors and investigators have a fiduciary responsibility to oversee the financial operations of the county and county programs. This course provides a practical approach for uncovering fraud and crafting sound policies and procedures to present fraud. Participants examine the seven most common instances of fraud and the warning signs through an interactive discussion and review of several recent headlined fraud cases. It examines conditions within entities that leave them susceptible to fraud and how to revise policies and procedures to stop these kinds of fraud from occurring. Highlighted topics include: personal fraud, fraudulent charging of expenses, overriding purchasing controls, personal use of public assets, kickbacks, and control weaknesses. Eligible for CPE credits for CPAs.
