Using Internal Controls to Better Manage and Monitor Programs
March 11, 2009 , 9 - 11 a.m. 2 CPE Hours Available!
AGA, in conjunction with the National Association of State Auditors, Comptrollers and Treasurers (NASACT) and the Association of Local Government Auditors (ALGA) is pleased to announce a new and increasingly important topic to our audio conference schedule�why internal controls matter to all organizations.
By now, most people understand the need for internal controls. But do they know how to implement these concepts? What are the underlying reasons that intelligent, hard-working people simply ignore or circumvent such checks and balances? Is it a matter of inadequate resources or laziness? Should poor leadership be tolerated? How can poor internal controls lead to fraud?
To share their views on these internal controls questions are Terry Carnahan, CGFM, CPA, Managing Director for Federal Internal Audit and Regulatory Compliance Services, KPMG LLP; and Robert Gray, CGFM, CIA, CFE, Consultant, Robert Gray Training; Former Regional Inspector General, U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Please join us for two hours of lively discussion about this important and timely topic. In addition to the speaker�s commentary, there will be approximately 20 minutes for Q & A so that the participants can ask the speakers questions and share their own experiences.
RSVP by emailing "Oki, Patrick" <[email protected]> by March 6th.
