Seven professional associations jointly issue antifraud programs and controls for management.
This new document identifies the measures an organization can take to prevent, deter and detect fraud, which can range from falsified financial statements to employee theft. Antifraud programs and controls, the document maintains, evolve from creating a culture of honesty and high ethics, evaluating internal processes and controls, and developing an appropriate oversight process.
Besides the AICPA, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Financial Executives International, Information Systems Audit and Control Association, Institute of Internal Auditors, Institute of Management Accountants, and the Society for Human Resource Management sponsored the guidance. Other organizations that participated in reviewing and offering advice include the American Accounting Association, Defense Industry Initiative and the National Association of Corporate Directors.
