Webinar: Clifton Gunderson is combating construction fraud

Clifton Gunderson, ranked as one of the nation's largest certified public accounting and consulting firms, will host a free webinar focused on the financial risks involved in construction projects. Chief Financial Officers, controllers, directors of internal audit, and owners of construction, real estate, architectural and engineering companies should all attend. The event will provide an opportunity for construction industry professionals to learn about fraud, what a fraudster looks like, the "Top 10" methods for perpetrating fraud within the industry and how to deter construction fraud. Continued Professional Education (CPE) credit will also be offered with this webinar.

"We couldn't be happier to offer this educational course to our clients and the industry as a whole," stated J.T. Huxford, Commercial Assurance Partner in Indianapolis. "Construction projects provide plenty of opportunity for fraudsters to get their hands on your money; and by gaining better insight of their profile and common schemes, contractors can better protect their company."

Michael Noyes, Senior Manger, Valuation and Forensic Services, will be the presenter of these topics. He has provided consulting services in construction and natural resources for the past 14 years and specializes in construction auditing, construction claims, and oil and gas disputes. Prior to his consulting career, Mike provided design and construction services to the oil and gas industry.

The seminar, entitled "Combating Construction Fraud," will take place Wednesday, June 11, 2008 and will be available twice that day with the first webinar from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM EST and the second webinar from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST.
