Development of an Anti-Fraud Program

A for-profit manufacturing organization loses a certain percentage of its annual revenue to fraud. Fraud occurs regardless of organizational size or type. Every organization is vulnerable to fraud. Fraud risk must be reduced as much as possible, hence preventing, deterring, and detecting fraud are crucial. Deterring and preventing fraud can be more economical than detecting, investigating, and recovering from fraud after-the-fact. These anti-fraud measures must start at the top and be communicated to all levels of the organization. They must go beyond internal controls and must be implemented on a cost-benefit basis.

In a 9-11 page, double-spaced paper, develop an anti-fraud program, or model, that can be implemented in an organization. This model, if applied correctly, must be efficient in preventing, detecting and deterring fraud.  At the minimum, your model must address the following factors:

  • Fraud risk
  • Fraud risk assessment
  • Employees’ behavioral expectations
  • Fraud prevention policies and procedures
  • Fraud detection policies and procedures
  • Fraud deterrence policies and procedures
  • Cost-benefit analysis.
