Why Should You Attend:

This new and exclusive certificate program will highlight the impact that the P2P process can have on an organization and will emphasize the key risks that must be considered within a P2P internal controls program. The program will follow an Internal Controls Questionnaire (ICQ) approach to the presentation material that will review each key transaction within the P2P process.

This knowledge will then be applied to the analysis of real life case studies from all the components of the P2P process that include: procurement, receiving, and accounts payable (AP). The attendees will have a unique opportunity to discuss “what went wrong” and determine the key internal controls that were missing. The instructor will spotlight the three critical corporate controls, the standards of internal control for P2P, and the top twenty controls for AP.

Attendees will learn all about the dependencies and interdependencies of the P2P process and its crucial impact on all supplier disbursements. The program will review the impact of regulatory compliance on the P2P process and will discuss current trends in the internal controls process.

  • Understand the three corporate critical controls and how to implement the policies and procedures to enforce them.

Topic Background:

The term Purchase to Pay (P2P) emerged in the 1990s and is one of a number of other buzz phrases that emerged as Internet applications became used more widely in business and accounting processes. The P2P process is an integral process for all companies; however, due to the large number of transactions within the process and the large dollars that are disbursed through the accounts payable function, the P2P business process is subject to a significant amount of risk that requires a laser focus on internal controls.
