State Comptroller Launches New Fraud Detection Training Initiative
New York State Comptroller, Thomas P. DiNapoli, launched a new fraud detection training initiative for not-for-profits, and the first training was held at the Long Island Center for Nonprofit Leadership at Adelphi University in Garden City on March 1st. LIAAC's Chief Financial Officer, Maria Josefina (Majo) Jacinto was in attendance. The program included case studies of actual fraud uncovered by state auditors and offered simple fraud detection tools to assist not-for-profits of all sizes, as well as providing a risk assessment model to help identify the most cost-effective ways to fight waste, fraud and abuse. Majo finds the initiative to be very relevant, timely and useful especially in today's times.
At the conclusion of the kick-off, Comptroller DiNapoli presented a check to the Long Island Association for AIDS Care, Inc. in the amount of $1,134.98 along with 4 other agencies representing unclaimed funds. Comptroller DiNapoli acknowledged LIAAC's unwavering hard work and dedication to the people of Long Island infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses.
