Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training on construction fraud prevention will discuss proven audits strategies and techniques for detecting and preventing common fraud and risk in construction activities. Attendees will also learn how to manage when fraud arises and the tips to effectively control construction costs.

Why Should You Attend:

Construction projects are complex and involve a large investment of time and money. Oversight of projects is difficult due to the volumes of paperwork, expertise needed, specialized skill sets, and trust placed in vendors. Historically it has been proven that once audit is conducted, recovery is possible.

Whether it is fixed fee contracts, cost plus, design build or guaranteed maximum, though the risk has shifted, there are still areas of fraud and abuse. This webinar will look at some of these areas of risk, allowing attendees to prioritize risk, risk mitigation and audit strategies.

It will explore the common types of construction frauds and techniques for enhancing your organizational ability to effectively control fraud and construction costs.

Topic Background:

Construction projects are complex in nature and contain terminology not commonly used elsewhere. Because of their complexity and the fast track nature of many projects, often audits are not done. Significant reliance may be placed with accounts payable personnel who may not be well trained to detect common errors or to find some of the errors.
