Security was involved because it appeared that department wide fraud was occurring. This was initiated by security. After careful review both of the contracts, the commissions structure and the billing system we found no fraud but in fact found that the team members had been taught to perform a process one way and of course they shared it with the other employees. What we needed to do was retrain the employees according to company policy because it had not be done as employees left and came into the company.

Interesting things I have been experiencing since the company split.Actually I had been working with A, which spinned of its one business forming altogether a new organization.There came my area of identifying potential risk.We identfied invoices which was billed to A and then they were again billed to K= with new Po and address.We identified around 416000$ of duplicate payments in 8 months. Which was paid from Agilent as well as K,Also some expenses were submitted by Employees in A, after few months of separation it was billed to K.So that again resulted in duplicate payement which were subsequently recovered.

Question 13 of 32
If you had an under performing auditor, what would you say to him or her, to help boost their performance?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
First I would be monitoring all of my auditors and have monthly debriefs. If I have an under performing auditor it is my job as a manager to work with them to find out where the problems are. I would tell him or her that we are in this together and if my auditor looks bad our entire team looks bad. I would have sessions where the entire team puts issues, concerns, suggestions, best practices on the table so that we are all on the same page. Everyone is capable of doing a good job, however as a manager it is my job to make sure I am giving my employees all the tools they need to succeed. And the most important part of that is to be aware of your auditors skill set so that you can help them enhance those skills as needed.
