Procurement Fraud Training Workshop – TEICCAF – Manchester

10/10/2017 @ 08:00 - 17:00

Course Title

Procurement Fraud


Half day



Session 3hrs - Exact times TBC

Procuring goods and services is an important area for all organisations.  In the current economic situation, it’s no surprise that fraud is on the rise in this area too.   Although not as widespread as other frauds, the vast sums involved make it a major area of risk – with the potential to lose your organisation massive amounts of money.  Add to that the ‘hidden’ losses caused by underperforming contracts and the associated chance of payment fraud, you’ll want to make sure that you’re as bullet-proof as you can be. 


This course mixes trainer input with syndicate work to help you safeguard your organisation’s funds and its reputation. Come and learn how to spot those who try their luck with you…
