Government Fraud

CPE Credit: 16
Online Virtual Seminar | February 8-10, 2022
Course Level: Overview
Prerequisite: None

A single case of occupational fraud costs government organizations a median $100,000, according to the ACFE’s 2020 Report to the Nations. The fraud risks they face can vary greatly from those in the private sector. Fraud examiners must understand the many types of fraud that affect government organizations including public corruption, contract fraud, performance schemes, beneficiary frauds and false claims. 

This virtual seminar will provide methods to assess, prevent and detect the various forms of government fraud so that you can protect your organization from the damages caused by these devastating schemes.
