Identifying Fraud, Waste, and Abuse in Federal Grant Programs

Presenter:  Gretta Goodwin, GAO

Various federal agencies awards grants to fund programs. These funds are to be used only for their intended purposed and within the established guidelines set forth by the grant. Grant recipients are responsible for providing adequate safeguards to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has identified leading practices for managing fraud risks and organized them into a conceptual framework called the Fraud Risk Management Framework (the Framework). The Framework encompasses control activities to prevent, detect, and respond to fraud, with an emphasis on prevention, as well as structures and environmental factors that influence or help managers achieve their objective to mitigate fraud risks. In addition, the Framework highlights the importance of monitoring and incorporating feedback. Using GAO’s risk-based framework to aid program managers in managing fraud risks, this event will discuss specific engagements where GAO has examined issues related to waste, fraud, or abuse in federal grant programs and developed recommendations on ways to address them.

 

The Best Fraud Defense is a Good ERM Offense

Presenter:  Michael Miles (Guidehouse)

The webinar will focus on how principles of ERM support the detection and remediation of fraud within organizations.  There will be particular focus on the principles of “Culture and Value”, “Risk Appetite”, “Risk Response” as well as “Information, Communication and Reporting” and how these principles support fraud management initiatives.
