Topic: Fraud Indicators and Risk Assessments                      

Description:       Fraud jeopardizes agency missions by diverting scarce resources from their intended purpose. A single case of fraud can undermine its mission, disrupt services, and force management to expend valuable time and resources to resolve and recover property lost to fraud. Reputational risks of fraud can greatly damage the perception of an agency, impact employee morale and create public distrust. To the extent managers can effectively mitigate and prevent fraud from occurring, it can save time and resources and present an agency image of good governance and deserving of public trust. This webinar will present actual fraud detection indicators, fraud cases and resolution, and the responsibilities for auditors to plan and perform risk assessments as enunciated in:

  • Management’s Responsibility for Enterprise Risk Management and Internal Control (OMB Circular No. A-123)
  • Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards (GAO Yellow Book)
  • Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government (GAO Green Book)

Cost/CPE:        Free 2.0 Hours CPE credits
