Government agencies are particularly susceptible to fraud according to surveys conducted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. As such, preventing fraud is the primary focus of training offered by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) to all state agencies. OIG's anti-fraud training is also available to other public and private entities; submit an information request for more details.
Learning to recognize the warning signs and then improving the agency’s policies and procedures can make all the difference!
OIG conducts fraud investigations throughout the State of Georgia but would prefer to help agencies stop fraud before it occurs; therefore, we offer anti-fraud training at no cost to the requesting agency. Training and education is a crucial component of fraud prevention.
OIG can customize the training program based on the evaluation of your needs and objectives. In the past, OIG has customized training programs for state government agencies (e.g. Georgia Department of Human Services, Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice), for conferences (e.g. Council for State Personnel Administration Conference), as well as for civic groups (e.g. the Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club). Training sessions have been easily adapted to the targeted audience (i.e. bookkeepers, executive-level management, mixed crowd) and have been given for groups ranging from 20 to 200 in size.
