Your Responsibility for Fraud in the Government Environment

The Yellow Book places responsibility on you, as an auditor, to design your audit to detect fraud. But what does fraud look like? What techniques can you use to find it? And how does it rear its ugly head in the government environment?

In this course, we will discuss the taxonomy of fraud as well as how to do your best to uncover it and document your work according to auditing standards. We will also explore recommendations that you can make to your clients to help them avoid fraud in the future.

Course objectives include:

·         Differentiate between auditing for fraud in the government environment and auditing for fraud in the commercial environment

·         Define the meaning of “design audits to detect” fraud relevant to audit objectives for financial audits and performance audits

·         Describe how to ask pointed questions of management, the audit committee, the internal audit director, and front line staff to unveil fraudulent activities in the workplace under AU-C Section 240

·         Identify techniques for easing into the uncomfortable, mandatory fraud interview

·         Categorize the three main types of fraud using the fraud tree

·         Select controls in the workplace to prevent fraud
