This training program will address why internal controls over travel and entertainment (T&E) expenditures are a critical component of the control environment. Although the topic of travel and entertainment abuse is not one that management likes to address, it is a very important indicator of the adequacy of a company's control environment.
Why should you Attend: If you are reviewing entertainment expenses and find discrepancies, how often do you hear management say, "What's the big deal? How bad could it be?" This is a prime indicator that there is a gap in understanding of the importance of simple internal controls and a sound control environment.
With today's advanced technology and digital media one would think that tracking simple T&E expenditures would be efficient. Yet with technological advancements comes new and innovative ways for individuals to side-step control procedures and slip the inadvertent expense through the system.
This webinar will discuss the impact of T&E abuse on various risk areas. Among other discussions, the course will also highlight areas of T&E abuse that often go unnoticed and result in expenditure fraud.
