Fraud Prevention Tool

AGA's Fraud Prevention Tool provides resources for federal, state, local and tribal government financial managers to use in preventing and detecting fraud.

The tool contains a comprehensive array of tools, posters, educational materials, PowerPoint presentations and videos. Users can find tools by looking under business process such as accounts receivable, program areas like the Office of Management and Budget's high-priority programs, or by fraud type such as billing schemes. It addresses fraud risks, red flags, and best practices/resources to help you implement a fraud prevention and detection action plan, labled as such throughout.


This tool is a down payment on a much larger vision for opening the lines of communication among governments. It will be expanded to cover grants management, subrecipient monitoring and other topics that can help promote governmental accountability. 

Tool Features:

  • Quick summaries of types of fraud likely to be encountered by governments.
  • Tools you can use today, without delay, to help in your fight against governmental fraud.
  • Links to a wide array of fraud-fighting resources including procedures, protocols, posters and papers on identifying and preventing fraud.
