Grant Fraud Investigation Training Program (GFITP)

Up one level

This four and a half day program was designed, at the request of the Attorney General’s National Procurement Fraud Task Force Grant Fraud Committee, for investigators (both criminal and non-criminal), auditors, analysts, and prosecutors who desire further training in the investigation of grant fraud type offenses.  These types of investigations require an in-depth knowledge of the Government grant process to identify where in the grant cycle the alleged violations have occurred, and what documents are required to support these allegations.

Successful completion of the GFITP will enable students to (1) identify common schemes in grant fraud and understand how those schemes fit into the grant process; (2) identify various investigative techniques that may be utilized to obtain the required documentation  to support the allegation(s) from both the Government files as well as the grantee’s records; and (3) identify what steps in the investigative process are necessary to successfully prove the violation.

Type: Advanced

Length: The training program is four and a half days in duration. Classroom time is approximately 36 hours over the four and a half days.
