The nonprofit community was recently stunned when it was revealed that a large national nonprofit organization suffered an embezzlement of over seven million dollars at the hands of one of its most trusted accountants. Situations like this are exactly why understanding internal controls is so important: it's a sure-fire way to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse within your organization.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) expects all non-Federal entities to have a documented system of controls that provides reasonable assurance that Federal awards are being managed in compliance with Federal statutes, regulations, and the terms and conditions of the Federal award. This webinar will show you exactly where to start.
