Managing the risk of fraud: FA1-23/2017-1-1E-PDF

“This audit focused on fraud risk management in five federal organizations: Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Global Affairs Canada, Health Canada, Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, and Public Services and Procurement Canada. We chose these organizations because of their different sizes and types of operations. This audit examined whether the selected organizations had mechanisms in place to appropriately manage the risk of fraud. Specifically, this audit focused on whether these organizations had governance processes to direct, evaluate, and monitor fraud risks; an assessment approach to identify fraud risks and mitigating actions; selected controls (policies, procedures, processes, and activities) to address specific fraud risks; and activities to investigate and manage allegations of fraud. The audit also examined whether the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat provided support to federal organizations to manage their risks, including fraud risks, and monitored the implementation of its relevant policies and directives”--Focus of the audit, p. 2.
