Deloitte has teamed with the Institute of Internal Auditors on an educational alliance and curriculum for fighting fraud.

The first course, "Fraud Awareness for Chief Audit Executives and Management," will be offered at the IIA's General Audit Management Conference on March 16 in Las Vegas. Other courses scheduled for this year include "Developing a Fraud Risk Management Program," "Advanced Fraud Auditing Using Computer-Assisted Techniques," and "Introduction to Fraud Auditing," which will be offered on April 2 in Houston.

A recent survey by the Deloitte Forensic Center of 277 senior-level executives found that 59 percent of them consider their organizations less effective at fraud control. Training is a key factor for those who consider their organizations more effective.

The IIA chose Deloitte to help develop the curriculum and teach the courses based on the experience of Deloitte's fraud and internal audit specialists. They include forensic accountants and auditors, former prosecutors, senior law enforcement officials, and agents from the FBI, Justice Department and other government agencies.
