Course Description

In 75.6% of expense reimbursement schemes, the perpetrator also undertakes at least one other form of occupational fraud. This startling fact comes from the Report to the Nations, one of the most respected fraud surveys conducted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. Many organizations are finding employees using creative approaches when preparing travel and expense reimbursement requests. The numbers will surprise you; expense reimbursement fraud is a lot more common than most people realize. In this course, instructor Mary Schaeffer will focus on the different games some employees play when attempting to get reimbursed for more than they deserve as well as tactics you can implement to stop this problematic behavior.



Instructor

Mary S. Schaeffer, MBA

Mary S. Schaeffer, MBA, has the inimitable ability to find accounts-payable-related solutions that really work—without making a major dent in the bottom line. Armed with a degree in math and a graduate degree in finance, she takes a “roll up your sleeves and dig into the details” approach to finding solutions to those problems that cause migraines for CFOs, controllers, and managers.

Fifteen years spent researching and writing about payment issues gives Mary a unique vantage point. Combine that with an almost equal amount of time spent in the corporate trenches of several large finance and treasury departments, and you’ll understand why she’s become known as America’s leading accounts payable expert.

A wide variety of institutions have taken advantage of her unique expertise: John Wiley & Sons has published over a dozen of her books; CRYSTALLUS, Inc. relies on her know-how to direct its professional publication, training, and consulting business; and the Institute of Financial Operations (IFO) turned to her to serve as its editor-in-chief, steering cutting-edge commentary into its Financial Ops magazine. She also developed the IFO’s Innovating Accounts Payable certificate program.

Mary shares her expertise in a variety of venues, giving 1-day seminars, as a guest speaker at regional and national events, and online in 25–30 webinars each year. For Western CPE, she produces self-study courses and webcasts.

She has a BS in mathematics from York College (CUNY) and an MBA in finance from New York University.
