Topic Background:

According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) “Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse” published in 2012, it predicted that 5% of an organization’s revenue is lost to fraud. Performing a fraud risk assessment can seem like a daunting task for an organization. In reality, it can be done using a template and brainstorming with internal auditors, certified fraud examiners and business unit leaders throughout your organization. It doesn’t require having a CFE but it does help to have some exposure to fraud auditing and a mind for coming up with schemes that can occur in any control environment. The fraud risk assessment can be built to tie in with current Sarbanes Oxley Controls to help companies assess whether the current control environment can help deter fraud from occurring.

Internal fraud investigations are stressful, no matter what the situation; someone has been accused of something that is against the internal code of conduct. Having a template to follow in order to conduct a proper investigation is an integral part of conducting a complete and accurate investigation. When performed in the sequence that will be provided in class, a complete and accurate investigation can be the result.
