As the number of COVID-19 cases rose in 2020, countless businesses had to shut their doors or reduce operations to minimize the spread of the virus. Owners of many of these businesses turned to government entities for financial support to help weather the pandemic. The U.S.’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) helped many businesses continue to pay employees while they remain closed or unable to operate at full capacity.  


In this on-demand webinar, U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Inspector General Mike Ware, CFE, and U.S. Assistant Inspector General Brian Grossman discuss real-life PPP fraud cases and trends, as well as outline what to expect due to changes in the program’s regulations.



You Will Learn How To:

Recognize the procedures used by the Small Business Administration to enforce the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act

Determine effective internal controls and control deficiencies related to CARES Act enforcement

Identify trends from real-life CARES Act fraud case studies
