Procurement Fraud Fundamentals

OnDemand Webinar (88 minutes)

Review various types of procurement fraud and discuss indicators to recognize and prevent fraudulent activities.Procurement fraud occurs throughout the procurement lifecycle. It can be perpetrated by any individual within the procurement and contracting community, from procurement managers to c-suite executives. It can also involve government personnel. Government contractors must be aware of the common procurement fraud schemes and be able to recognize conduct indicative of procurement fraud. Failure to identify and prevent procurement fraud from occurring subjects government contractors and their employees to administrative, civil, and even criminal liability. This topic will review the most common types of procurement fraud and discuss common indicators for each with a focus on case studies and guidance from the Department of Defense investigative activities. It will also provide a brief overview of the intake process for procurement fraud investigations.
