For starters, by increasing awareness of processes and activities that contain potential for fraud, as well as the impact of fraudulent activity on operational health.

A new and timely paper, How to Combat Corruption and Fraudulent Activity in Procurement, highlights seven areas often associated with enterprise fraud. It discusses specific scenarios that lead to risk exposure, and the steps procurement can take to mitigate those risks.
