Construction Fraud: Detection, Prevention & Response – November 12-13, Dallas, Texas
Recognized authority on fraud-related training Courtenay Thompson, President of Courtenay Thompson & Associates, will direct “Construction Fraud: Detection, Prevention & Response.” This construction fraud seminar provides solutions. Protection against construction fraud is more than assuring accurate billing. Fraud may involve trusted insiders in collusion with contractors, or it may be the contractors themselves, as in recent bid rigging cases. Fraud can impact projects from start to finish. Corruption, kickbacks, conflicts of interest, performance issues, and predatory billing practices are common forms of construction fraud. Political considerations and relationships combine with the very nature of construction projects to make fraud difficult to detect and even harder to handle. This course raises awareness and provides practical tools for prevention, detection and response.
