Recognizing fraud risks in governmental and not-for-profit organizations is often challenging due to the inherent nature of these organizations. In addition to their public nature, these organizations may have limited support staff or staff with limited accounting expertise which can result in less than effective fraud prevention and detection programs and/or increased opportunities for fraud. Using a combination of examples, explanations of audit standards, and case studies, you will obtain an understanding of the frauds most commonly perpetrated in these entities and what prevention and detection procedures are effective in responding to these fraud risks. This CPE course also discusses how auditors might address their responsibilities with respect to fraud in a financial statement audit of governmental and not-for-profit organizations.

Topics Discussed:

  • GAAS and GAGAS standards related to the auditor’s responsibility with respect to fraud in a financial audit.
  • Recognize areas where fraud most likely occurs in governmental and not-for-profit organizations.
  • Fraud programs and controls that may be effective in addressing fraud risks in governmental and not-for-profit organizations.

  • Understand the auditor’s responsibility with respect to fraud in a financial statement audit.
