Fraud can occur anywhere, including in the contract and procurement process. This course examines how the public procurement process works and how fraud can occur in the form of intentional misrepresentation, promissory fraud, and concealment. Instructor Dennis Dycus reviews methods of procurement, exceptions that can be invoked, phases of the procurement process, and types of government contracts. A clear understanding of the contract and procurement processes is key to recognizing when off book frauds such as bribes and kickbacks, illegal gratuities, economic distortion, collusion, and conflicts of interest occur. Tips are provided to establish an effective corporate fraud prevention program, a procurement fraud prevention program, and an ethics program.
