Practical Seminar, March 4 – 5, 2013, Berlin, Germany

Damages done to public institutions and organisations by fraud and corruption can be immense – ranging from financial loss, damage to organisational performance, reputation and credibility loss. Especially if the case makes the headlines in the media, it permanently harms public confidence and undermines the legitimacy for administration and spending of tax-payers’ money by this institution.
At this practical seminar in Berlin participants will receive first-hand knowledge on what is the specific role of the auditor in detecting fraud and corruption in the public sector as well as how to best deal with fraud and corruption cases detected. The attendees will learn among others:
• How to build an effective anti-corruption strategy in your authority
• What are the most effective processes and measures to prevent and to detect fraud and corruption in public institutions and organisations
• How to react to fraud and corruption cases
• How to audit procurements for fraud and corruption
• How to plan fraud and corruption investigations
• What are the most effective investigation tactics
• What are the main risks in IT projects
• How to protect whistleblowers
With the contribution of experienced audit experts from:
• Ministry of Finance, Central Audit Service, the Netherlands
