TOPIC: assessing fraud risk in audit engagement planning

Speaker: keith Salas
cfe/cgap, office of city auditor, city of austin

 Program Description:

Fraud is ever-present in our world, but uncovering it is not always straightforward.  Auditors can help.  In this session, you will learn a practical approach to incorporating fraud risks into the planning stage of an audit.  We will discuss what the standards require, potential steps to take within an audit, the types of questions an auditor can ask to help uncover fraud, and what the non-auditor can do to help.

About the speaker

Keith Salas has been with the City of Austin's Office of the City Auditor for almost 5 years, most of that time in the City Auditor's Integrity Unit, which conducts investigations of fraud, waste, and abuse.  He holds degrees in economics and public affairs and is a CFE and CGAP.  He's really excited to speak to the Austin Chapter of the ACFE.

Learning objectives:

    Attendees will be able to:

    1) determine potential fraud risks for various audit topics.

    2) develop potential steps to take within a given audit to better identify fraud.

    3) craft targeted questions to better uncover potential fraud.
