Export -


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

Successful completion of the PFITP will enable students to: identify in which phase of the five phases of the Government procurement process the alleged violations have occurred and what scheme was utilized to perpetrate the offense, 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 contractor’s records, identify what steps in the investigative process are necessary to successfully document the violation, identify and select investigative team members, define their duties and responsibilities, demonstrate how to present these complex investigations to both prosecutors and administrative officials and demonstrate how case organization and presentation tools may be used to organize and present their investigative findings.


This program is open to agents, criminal investigators, non-criminal investigators, auditors, analysts, attorneys, and other personnel who provide support for investigations.
