Course Description

Course Description

Procurement fraud occurs when there is deliberate deception within the procedure-to-pay process that results in some type of financial gain or loss. In a typical scenario, companies lose when a vendor is awarded business at an above-market scale and then the employee that granted the contract receives a kickback of some kind. It could be cash, gifts, or something else.

The rise in contract management and the outsourcing of goods and services has created an increase in procurement fraud, which can occur at any stage of the contracting and procurement process. Appropriate controls, fraud prevention strategies, and proper tendering processes are necessary for the fight against this fraud.

You must be aware of the vulnerabilities and risks associated with fraud schemes that attack the purchasing, procurement, and contract functions. Acquire the knowledge, skills, and techniques you need to prevent, detect and deter these devastating frauds.

Major topics discussed in this CPE Audit Webinar:

  • The Procurement Process
  • Fraud vulnerabilities within the process
  • Fraud considerations in the procurement process
  • Areas at risk of procurement fraud
  • The Fraud Triangle
  • Procurement Red Flags

In this CPE Fraud and forensic course, we will examine procurement fraud through actual case studies, to show how the frauds developed, how they were found, and what the consequences were for the company
