Postponed: Public Entity Controls to Identify and Prevent Fraud

Open to DVPLT members at no cost.

Unfortunately, fraud can happen anywhere, even in the best run organizations and perpetrated by the nicest people. The question is not “could fraud happen here?” but “how can we deter fraud?” and if it does occur, “how quickly can we identify it?”  Fraud deterrence and detection is the responsibility of everyone in your organization. This presentation will look at several real life municipal fraud case studies.  It will discuss not only what went wrong in each case but also identify the red flags and what controls could have been in place to identify and prevent the fraud.  It will also review how to conduct a fraud risk assessment and how to create a culture of accountability. Managers, supervisors, finance directors, human resource directors and elected officials are encouraged to attend.
