Predictive Analytics (On-Demand Webinar)


CPE Credit: 2 
Course Level: Advanced
Prerequisite: An understanding of data analytics


Description:

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) established a Data Mining Group within its Office of Investigations to identify and prioritize probable fraudulent activity in four distinct areas of the Postal Service: contracts, health care, mail theft and finance. The USPS managed more than $33 billion in contracts in FY2009 and the OIG has previously relied primarily on hotline tips for investigative leads. Partnering with Elder Research Inc., the USPS OIG has developed a contract fraud data mining tool by combining advanced data mining techniques, data visualization and subject matter expertise to score all USPS contracts for potential fraud, waste and abuse. 

In this course, you will learn how the USPS OIG believes that this promising antifraud tool will also aid auditing, postal business operations and other governmental agencies looking to reduce and minimize fraud, waste and abuse

  • Recognize key elements of predictive analytics
  • Identify challenges in detecting fraud in the workplace
