Spending volumes, complex purchasing processes and decentralized buying make fraud detection more challenging in large procurement offices and make the need for ongoing detection processes more critical than ever.

A recent U.S. Government Accountability Office study that assesses government- contracting trends, combined with SAS’ experience enabling procurement fraud analytics across a vast global customer base, provides a baseline of best practices for any organization looking to improve controls to reduce improper payments and reduce fraud within contracts. 

This webinar will explore current contracting trends seen within government contracts and non-governmental purchasing offices, highlight the red flags to spot these trends and reinforce basic procurement fraud detection methodology. The webinar will conclude with best practices in detection and developing an approach to onboard such capabilities.

In this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Recognize the principles of developing a Procurement Integrity Program  
  • Leverage existing efforts and best positions for future success
  • Distinguish lessons learned fro operationalizing analytics across global procurement offices
