Grants enable public sector entities to operate programs, provide services to the community, and fulfill their policy, legislative, and regulatory mandates rather than investing in the infrastructure they would need to deliver all those services. Playing the role of either the grantor or grantee, these entities must be aware of the potential pitfalls each may present.  

This practice guide reviews the life cycle of a grant and the activities within each phase for the grantor and the grantee. Tools provided include:

  •          Sample interview questions for multiple stakeholders.
  •          A list of key risks and controls in grant management and administration.
  •          A discussion of how to measure outcomes.
  •          A discussion of planning engagements to assess grants.
  •          Examples of risk and control matrices.
  •          Key terms and phrases.
  •          Program management at the recipient and subrecipient level.
  •          And much more.

Assessing Fraud Risk at the Engagement Level 15NOV23ONLINE

The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) defines fraud as “any illegal act characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust. These acts are not dependent upon the threat of violence or physical force. Frauds are perpetrated by parties and organizations to obtain money, property, or services; to avoid payment or loss of services; or to secure personal or business advantage.” Based on the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) 2020 Report to the Nations, organizations lose 5% of revenue to fraud each year on average. Therefore, a fraud risk assessment is an effective tool utilized by companies of all sizes and industries to effectively identify and prioritize areas of fraud risk within their organization, with a focus on the review of potential fraud schemes and putting the internal controls in place to prevent or detect those schemes.
