Presentations from the 2010 conference available now!
Along with the major investment in our Nation’s transportation programs and projects comes the even greater responsibility to use those taxpayer funds wisely. Today, the transportation community faces significant pressure to handle more challenges with fewer resources due to stretched budgets, reduced staff, the cumulative demands of maintaining an ever-growing infrastructure, and a host of other factors. The consequences of fraud, waste, and abuse are that less money is available to meet project objectives and public confidence in the integrity and safety of our transportation system is compromised. Proactive and effective fraud prevention, detection, deterrence, and prosecution are achievable through a well-coordinated and multidisciplinary approach.
The conference is for those involved in any aspect of local, State, or Federal oversight of highway, transit, and airport infrastructure programs, including program and project managers/executives, contracting officials, analysts, engineers, attorneys, auditors, investigators, and law enforcement personnel. Along with employees of State and local Inspectors and Auditors General, industry representatives are also encouraged to participate. Working together, we can protect transportation projects from fraud and maintain public confidence in the integrity and safety of our Nation’s transportation system.
Primary goals of the conference are to sharpen awareness of fraud schemes; share best investigative, audit, and oversight practices; and strengthen our all-important working relationships in an effort to detect, prevent, and deter transportation infrastructure contracting fraud schemes. The conference includes distinguished speakers from all levels of government and industry, case studies of civil and criminal fraud, and panel discussions. Up to 17 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits can be earned.
