Procurement Fraud Prevention and Detection Masterclass


Course introduction

Do you know fraud is ubiquitous, it does not discriminate in its occurrence? Fraud does not discriminate, not by industry, geography, races, ethnics, and education background. Procurement is the most vulnerable department in Asset Misappropriation Fraud.
Singaporeans are very concern with Bribery and Corruption when dealing with cross-border business and transactions. It is a fact that most payments to vendors are legitimate but, a portion of that could be fraudulent. Most corporations in the world agreed that the complexities of fraud have increased since the introduction of technology in business, moving from people fraud to e-crime (ACFE Reports to the Nations 2014).
Could Procurement Fraud happen to you? Are you prepared for this challenge? Are your organisation and its people ready and confident to protect your system from such a devastating act?
