AICPA & CIMA 2022 Governmental Accounting & Auditing Online Update

GAE2219 - Federal Oversight of Specific COVID Programs

Aug 16, 2022 1:10pm ‐ Aug 16, 2022 2:25pm


With the historic $2.2 trillion 2020 CARES Act legislation and supplemental and the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 that shortly followed, there is significant risk of corruption, fraud, waste, abuse and mismanagement without proper monitoring and oversight. Proper and timely implementation of compliance, monitoring, and oversight can help mitigate the risk of fraud, waste, and abuse, achieve accountability and transparency, minimize improper payments, and corroborate legal and regulatory compliance.

Learning Objectives:
  • Trends and emerging schemes in the wake of COVID and ARP
  • How organizations (both private and public) are responding/how anti-fraud programs are changing
  • How forensic accountants and fraud investigators’ jobs are affected (challenges and opportunities)
  • What we can learn from this to help improve our ability to fight fraud in the future (e.g., Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA))


  • Lisa Reijula, Associate Director, Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency
  • Tom Caulfield, Chief Operating Officer, Procurement Integrity Consulting Services
  • John Provan, Audit Director, Small Business Administration Office of Inspector General
