Presenter: Rick Roybal

Description: If left unchecked, vendors and contractors can defraud any organization. These fraudsters identify gaps and procedural weaknesses in an organization's internal control system. Having identified those gaps and weaknesses, they are able to manipulate employees and systems in order to illegally profit from an organization's lack of oversight. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the fundamentals of fraud
  • Recognize potential methods of how vendors manipulate an Operator's procure-to-pay process.
  • Identify internal controls to mitigate vendor fraud
  • Provide an overview of vendor audit best practices
