About the course

The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and the Government Accountability Office's (GAO) Yellow Book places responsibility on auditors to design their audit to detect fraud. But what does fraud look like? What techniques can you use to find it? And how does it rear its ugly head in the government environment?

In this course, the taxonomy of fraud will be discussed as well as how to do your best to uncover it and document your work in compliance with auditing standards.

  • Apply Yellow Book and GAAS requirements regarding fraud to your organization;
