P-Card usage is on the rise and so are the cases of P-Card fraud! Many companies have implemented P-Cards as a means to reduce invoice volume and increase efficiency within accounts payable department and within the procure to pay (P2P) cycle. But the increased use of P-Cards has resulted in additional risk which creates an enhanced focus on internal controls and spotlights the role of the P-Card Administrator.
Overall, P-Cards provide a means for streamlining the procure-to-pay process, allowing organizations to procure goods and services in a timely manner, reduce transaction costs, track expenses, take advantage of supplier discounts, reduce or redirect staff in the purchasing and/or accounts payable departments, reduce or eliminate petty cash, and more. Learn how to detect and prevent fraud throughout this important process.
The instructor will identify the ‘red flags” of P-Card fraud and will provide a practical internal controls toolkit that will help reduce the potential for fraud and mitigate risk within the process. We’ll present a timely case study that describes what can happen if a good P-Card controls program is not in place. We’ll identify the specific “red flags” and how the situation could have been prevented.
