Procurement Fraud :
2014 annual CSI Certication Masterclass

A practical and hands-on training from the
No.1 Fraud Buster in Asia Pacic region :
& 28
August 2014
Parkroyal Hotel, Kuala Lumpur
Global economies and organisations understand the reality of the fraud risks
inherent in the procurement process but is enough being done to prevent it?
The usual remedy appears to be the strengthening of internal controls.
If strengthening of internal controls can eradicate Procurement fraud, we will
not have any fraud for the past 100 years.
The reality is that there will always be fraud.
Motivation, opportunity, and rationalization its the recipe for fraud, any type
of fraud. Abuse within the procurement cycle is common and can be
damaging, from the magnitude of potential monetary losses to the
reputational damage that can come from a loss of trust of important
stakeholders such as investors, customers, and other suppliers.
Procurement fraud is a risk for all organisations that carry out any form of
procurement activity. In reality that applies to virtually every organisation
globally, on a daily basis. The published fraud risks to both the public and
private sectors are immense and the losses are well documented.
This CSI Certifcation Masterclass will provide you with practical experience
and the Snap-On Tool to tackle procurement fraud. We will provide you
with the tools to go back to your organisations so that you will be able to
request for an objective internal organisational system review using the
SEATA platform.
