Speaker:  Rachel Snell, Director of Audit, Coast Community College District
Topic: Fraud Red Flag? Get the Big Picture
1 hour of CPE credit
Performing audits and investigations puts auditors in touch with many different sources of evidence.  As we review and analyze information, it is often difficult to step outside the detail and take a “big picture” look at what the evidence truly reveals.  In review of four different case studies, attendees will be presented with real examples where the evidence strongly suggested wrongdoing, but in some cases, the conclusions were not what was anticipated.  Overall, attendees will gain insight on audit approaches when red flags for fraud are raised and how to methodically follow the evidence through in order to draw supported conclusions.
Rachel Snell has performed operational responsibilities in both the public and private sectors and she worked for a United States Congressman.  Starting her audit career more than 8 years ago with the Texas State Auditor’s Office, Rachel has performed audit work in State and local governmental settings.  She was previously The IIAAustin Chapter President and currently serves as the Director of Internal Audit for the Coast Community College District
