Procurement Certification in Combating Risk and Fraud

August 20 - August 22


Combating procurement fraud is vital. Nearly all organisations will have been victims of procurement fraud and the consequences can be much greater than the value of the fraud.

  • For private sector organisations, tackling it vigorously can mean boosting profits by several percentage points – making the difference between being a ‘winner’ and ‘loser’ – expanding or contracting.
  • For governments, tackling procurement fraud effectively can boost its reputation, thus at tracting more inward investment, improving public services and, with globalisation, making it a more competitive nation.
