Class Status: This class is available for registration up to and including the first day of the class. But we encourage you to pre-register by 15 days before the first day of the class so we will be able to determine class status. Remember, we are forced to cancel any class that has fewer than 9 people planning to attend. Also, there is no tuition due if you pre-register. Tuition is due only if the class is confirmed. All tuition prepaid for classes that are cancelled will be returned.

One of the most frequently cited audit findings is the lack of adequate Internal Controls. Every federal financial assistance award requires the development and implementation of internal control procedures. The purpose of these procedures is to provide the checks and balances that help prevent waste, fraud, abuse, misuse or misappropriation of program resources. Internal control policies and procedures are also needed in every other aspect of Tribal operations and administration. Theft and fraud are a significant problem in Indian Country. Areas of concern include purchasing, travel, housing construction, payroll, illegal kickbacks and gratuities. This seminar will examine the requirements under the NEW Super Circular and procedures for internal controls which need to be put in place by the Tribe and its programs. Also it will identify “red flags”, and provide guidance in detection and investigation as well as prevention. This training is for all program management and Tribal administration staff.
