Timekeeping Fraud and Mandatory Disclosures

E-mail Print PDF

Just a reminder that Nick Sanders – that’s me! – will be speaking at an upcoming meeting of the San Diego Chapter of the Association of Government Accountants. I’ll be speaking on February 14th – Valentine’s Day – at lunchtime.

Here’s a link to event registration, if you’re interested. Registration closes on February 8th. That’s tomorrow!

For those who are not attending, I’ll be covering the following topics:

  • Risks and mitigating controls—i.e,, what are circumstances where timekeeping fraud is likely to be found, and what might you do to detect and/or prevent it?

  • Mandatory Reporting Requirements—i.e., are you required to submit a disclosure under the 52.203-13 contract clause for instances of timekeeping fraud? Are you sure?

  • Quantification and Audit Support—i.e., if you choose to disclose instances of timekeeping fraud, how do you quantify the government’s damages? How do you convince an auditor that you did it correctly?

  • Active Monitoring—i.e., are there means and methods of detecting timekeeping fraud, other than waiting for a Hotline call?

 

 

Newsflash

In March 2009, Nick Sanders’ article “Surviving Government Audits: Have the Rules of Engagement Changed?” was published in Government Contract Costs, Pricing & Accounting Reports (4 No. 2 GCCPAR P. 11). Apogee Consulting, Inc. is proud to announce that Mr. Sanders’ article was selected for reprint and publication in Thomson West’s The New Landscape of Government Contracting.  Mr. Sanders, Apogee Consulting’s Principal Consultant, joins such distinguished contributors as Professors Steven Schooner and Christopher Yukins, Luis Victorino and John Chierachella, Joseph West and Karen Manos, Joseph Barsalona and Philip Koos and Richard Meene, and several others.  The text covers a lot of ground, ranging from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to Business Ethics and Corporate Compliance, and includes several articles on the False Claim Act and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.  In addition, the text includes the full text of many statutory and regulatory matters affecting Government contract compliance.
