CPAR GOV - Auditing Practice

CPAR GOV/NFP - Vol. 2020 - No. 3 - 03 - COVID-19 and Fraud Schemes for Government Agencies and NFPs

COVID-19 not only finds its place in every conversation, regardless of the topic, but it takes a leading role. It has affected our lives in more ways than we’ve ever imagined and it is not over yet. We see its impact on our individual lives, our businesses and also our wallets. Congress passed the CARES Act in an effort to provide financial assistance for both individuals and businesses, but whenever there is government relief, along comes fraud! Brian Sanvidge, CIG, CFE, Principal and Leader of Anchin’s Regulatory Compliance and Investigations Group, discusses the current environment and how it makes government agencies and nonprofit organizations more susceptible to fraud.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the fraud-related challenges governments and nonprofits are currently facing,
  • Understand the correlation between an organization’s size and fraud,
  • Recognize how the pandemic enables fraud, and
  • Determine how the remote working environment promulgates fraud.

Prerequisites/Advanced Preparation:

Work experience in government accounting or auditing, or an introductory course in government auditing.
