– Ermelinda S. Deocariza, Audit Manager
I used to be a member of a team conducting fraud audit in local and national government agencies. Usually, we audit local report and recommend the filing of appropriate costs in court. The report is then forwarded to our legal office for evaluation if there is sufficient evidence to warrant the filing of a criminal case in court. After that, the whole docket of the case is forwarded to the resident ombudsman for evidence appreciation. Most often, the costs are dismissed due to insufficiency of evidence gathered by us auditors.
Now I realize that there really is a big GAP between the audit brochures undertaken as against an investigation. It really matters if auditors are knowledgeable also as to what evidences are dismissible in court as well as strategies/techniques applicable in criminal proceedings.
I’m glad there is this program that bridges the GAP.
