Supporting Public Internal Control Department (PICD) to Fight Fraud

04-Apr-2019

PMCG against Fraud

On March 29-30, we conducted a workshop for public internal auditors at the Public Internal Control Department (PICD) in order to enhance their capacity in fraud detection.


The main objective of this workshop was to enable internal auditors to implement fraud detection analytical techniques and procedures at local and central levels. With this in mind, during the workshop we discussed various topics, including a general introduction to fraud prevention and detection methods, the documenting and reporting of cases of alleged fraud, identifying fraud risk factors in the public sector, and fraud audit report writing.

“The workshop aimed to develop a fraud-specific training module for internal auditors in the public sector. The module will enable internal auditors to perform robust fraud risk assessment evaluating exposure to various types of fraud, to develop detailed fraud audit programs, and to implement fraud detection analytical techniques and procedures,” said Vakhtang Kezheradze, Consultant at PMCG.

The training was conducted by PMCG, as part of a consortium led by Tetra Tech ARD, under the USAID-funded Good Governance Initiative (GGI).
