Detecting P-Card Fraud, Errors, Waste and Abuse Using Forensic Analytics
Presenter: Dr. Mark Nigrini, Professor, West Virginia University
Monday, April 10, 2017, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Please note this is a six-hour workshop)

An NAPCP poll found that transaction audit rates were anywhere from zero to 100%, with the rationale for the low audit rates being a lack of resources. One manager stated that their company identified and focused on the risky transactions first. This workshop will demonstrate a structured way of identifying and selecting the higher-risk transactions for audit. The main steps in the process are data collection, data preparation, data analysis and reporting. This sample selection method is known as the Nigrini Cycle.

The workshop will include a review of some actual fraud and abuse cases in a way that this fraud awareness can be presented again by participants in their own companies. The workshop will include hands-on time where you can analyze your own data, or an instructor-provided transactions table of authentic P-Card data. The instructor will provide customized Excel-based templates that can be used on your own data.

Travel Data Access and Analytics
Presenter: Jack Reynaert, Manager of Global Travel, Meritor, Inc.
Monday, April 10, 2017, 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Significant work is involved when developing a Corporate Card program. Identifying the opportunities and establishing methods to optimize utilization is critical for success. Capture those opportunities for enhanced travel management controls that data offers.

Be prepared to step into the facts and figures-based workshop to explore dashboards and case studies. Emerge with the data-based tools that provide optimal services and drive savings and compliance to your travel program. Working with your peers, gathering ideas and components and means to measure, will help you build on what you have worked so hard to establish.

In this workshop environment, the skills of your peers, and how they tackle various challenges, can shed light on methods you could deploy to help your program.

We are Not in Kansas Anymore Toto – Implementing a Global P-Card Program
Presenters: Paul Demers, Global P-Card Manager, EMC Corporation and Steve Homewood, Senior Consultant, PayTech Consulting
Monday, April 10, 2017, 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.

As the benefits of P-Card programs are becoming better understood and increasingly proven, corporations are looking to expand their domestic programs overseas in search of standard processes, an increase of efficiencies, lower costs and improved cash flow.

While the quickest strategy may appear to be to simply expand the current program internationally with your current provider, this workshop will demonstrate that implementing a global P-Card program requires careful preparation and planning, a clear target end-state, patience and perseverance—but most importantly, the right issuing partner.

Many foreign countries have specific Commercial Card laws and regulations that differ from each other, adding complexities you won’t experience domestically. Effectively maneuvering through the myriad of legal, fiscal, administrative and card holder rules, as well as dealing with the internal change management challenges you may face, will be keys to success.

Using real-life examples and advice to help reduce the surprises, this workshop will guide you from scoping the expansion project, through selection of an issuing partner, implementation planning and execution and stabilization.
