Keeping a Lid on the Cookie Jar: Detecting, Preventing, and Mitigating the Risk of Fraud in Grants Management

Melinda DeCourt, Partner, and Eric Russell, Senior Manager, Crowe Horwath LLP

Whether you are serving as a recipient, subrecipient, or awarding official, you share in the responsibility to safeguard Federal funding. This requires not only an awareness of compliance risks, but also of matters that result in actual or suspected fraud, waste, or abuse – both inside and outside of your organization. During this webinar, presenters will discuss specific fraud threats and red flags, improper payments, mitigation strategies and best practices, and disclosure requirements under the Uniform Guidance.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss best practices and strategies to prevent and detect fraud, waste, or abuse in Federal programs.
  • Identify factors that may increase the risk to which your organization or agency is exposed.
  • Understand mandatory disclosure requirements
