Annual Joint Meeting with the
Dallas Chapter of the
Association of Certified Fraud Examiners
CityPlace Conference Center

Meeting 12:00pm - 1:20pm
Registration begins at 11:30pm

Fraud: Follow the Money
Michael D. Lacenski, Internal Revenue Service

Money laundering. Medical fraud. Racketeering. Narcotics. Tax evasion. These crimes all have a common bond----they are done for profit. Every year criminals cost our society billions and billions of dollars.

As criminals involved in fraud and corruption become sophisticated in the ways they infuse their illegal proceeds into the banking systems, financial investigators must be able to employ forensic accounting to look behind the appearance of legitimacy and examine the underlying flow of funds.

This presentation is designed to provide an overview of a systematic financial approach to uncovering fraud and solving crimes. It will highlight the methods, theories and applications used by IRS Special Agents to “follow the money.’’

Michael D. Lacenski is the Special Agent in Charge of the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division, Dallas Field Office. Mr. Lacenski was named to this position in May 2000 and reports directly to the Director, Field Operations, Midstates Area. Mr. Lacenski began his IRS career in 1982 as a special agent in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He held increasingly responsible positions as group supervisor in Madison, Wisconsin, and Undercover Program Manager in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1996, Mr. Lacenski was selected as the Branch Chief in Greensboro, North Carolina; the position he held until his selection as Special Agent in Charge, Dallas Field Office. Mr. Lacenski has a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Wisconsin at Platteville.


Pre-Meeting 10:30am - 11:30am

Fraud: Internal Audit & Investigations, a Case Study
Bert Lacativo, Dispute Analysis and Investigations

When allegations of fraud and improper activity surface, Internal Auditors often find themselves on the front lines. This interactive case study is designed to address the issues facing Internal Auditors when confronted with what to do as a result of these types of allegations. The speaker will call upon his 25+ years of experience to provoke discussion surrounding:

  • Fielding “the call” from the Audit Committee Chair
  • The role Internal Auditors can and should play to address allegations of fraud and/or improper activity
  • Interaction with outside counsel, independent investigative teams and regulators
  • Dealing with the External Auditor

Bert Lacativo, a former FBI Special Agent, is a Partner in the Dispute Analysis and Investigations practice in Dallas, Texas. Mr. Lacativo has more than twenty five years of financial and investigative experience in the corporate, government and consulting arenas and regularly provides forensic accounting, litigation and investigative consulting services to law firms and companies.

Mr. Lacativo has assisted companies and their counsel in a wide variety of investigative matters including financial statement irregularities that have led to the quantification of financial misstatements and the restatement of financial results. He has also assisted companies in presenting investigative findings to governmental authorities including the FBI, Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General-Health and Human Services and the SEC. Mr. Lacativo has also testified in Federal Court in connection with a criminal antitrust matter.

Mr. Lacativo’s experience includes the provision of assistance to companies in the development and implementation of ethics, compliance and anti-fraud programs, policies and procedures.


Post-Meeting 1:30pm - 2:30pm

Is Your SAS 70 Worth its Weight in Paper?
Randy Gregg, Grant Thornton

With the increased scrutiny on SAS 70 Reports for Service Organizations, is your SAS 70 meeting your objectives? SAS 70 Reports are often obtained but rarely analyzed. SAS 70 Reports can be a valuable tool if prepared with controls relevant to user organizations. Understand the two types of SAS 70 Reports and determine whether they are meeting the needs for which they are required.

Randy A. Gregg is a Senior Manager in Grant Thornton’s Business Advisory Services Practice in Dallas. He has over 14 years experience providing assurance and advisory services to a variety of industries including public companies, manufacturing, retail, real estate, construction, governments and non-profit organizations. Randy has managed SAS 70 reviews, which comprised readiness assessments and the completion of testing for data and item processing companies and application service providers. He has helped a variety of clients through their development of their description of controls sections and advised them on revisions to existing control objectives and controls statements to more accurately depict the internal control structure of the organization. This diversity enables Randy to produce creative solutions for his clients. Randy is a champion of Grant Thornton’s audit and internal control methodology and has in-depth experience with our audit and internal control tools. Randy has also been a guest speaker and presenter on the topic of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

IIA Research Foundation

The IIA Research Foundation has recently published a report entitled Enterprise Risk Management: Identifying Risks in B2B E-Commerce Relationships. Internal auditors have assumed the responsibility of ensuring adequate internal controls are in place across the enterprise. This enterprise includes relationships with vendors, customers, and outsourcing providers through supply chain arrangements. These extended-enterprise relationships are heavily dependent on information technology-based systems linked through increasingly tight business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce linkages. This report will:

  • Articulate the risks surrounding B2B e-commerce relationships to enhance your understanding of how they impact enterprise risk management.
  • Explore the various facets of B2B e-commerce relationships to help you attain a better understanding of key risk factors to monitor as a component of B2B e-commerce risk management efforts.
  • Help you understand how to assess relationships with current or potential B2B partners to better comprehend the likely risk level inherited via the trading relationship.
  • Explain how to identify critical risk factors in sufficient detail to replicate the process if a uniquely tailored set of critical risk factors is desired.
  • Provide a general strategy for addressing B2B e-commerce risks as a component of an overall enterprise risk management strategy.

It is in paperback form and totals 129 pages. You can order it online at – www.theiia.org/?act=form.bookstore, or calling toll free 1-877-867-4957. (Publication order # 502; IIA member price – $75; nonmember price - $90).


Endorsed Internal Audit Program at the
University of Texas at Dallas Update

A Fresh Start

With spring right around the corner and a lot of us looking forward to something different than SOX, now is the time to begin planning for what to do next. New ideas and creative approaches to solving problems many times come from the more academic environments since they can experiment with solutions to various problems. New ideas can also be spurred by attending monthly IIA meetings along with seminars that are offered by the Chapter.

Students many times have opportunities particularly in the classroom to hear many different audit groups with very different ways to approach audit. They also have lots of chances for case study projects that require them to work on teams and come up with different ways to solve problems. We would recommend for any of you to take the opportunity to talk to some of the students you see at the monthly meetings and see what they are working on in their course work. The Internal Audit class this semester is working on five different audits for the University of Texas at Dallas. The thing that is great about the work they are doing is that it varies from compliance audit, follow-up reviews, technology, operational and financial. The diversity of the work is what we all hope for going forward and they are having the opportunity to achieve it. If you have never hired an intern in the past, consider it as opportunity to bring new ideas and also give someone a chance to bring ideas back to the classroom.

The Student Chapter resumes are currently available and to get your fresh start with new ideas look for new staff from the UTD Student Chapter at www.utdallas.edu/orgs/iia. If you are interested in any of the students for full time or internship positions you can set up interviews on campus at the School of Management. Recruiting for interns is beginning the week of February 21, so get your requests in now. If you are interested in students in the program contact Mark Salamasick at 972-883-4729 or mark.salamasick@utdallas.edu.


Report Your Speaking and Writing

It's time again for the survey to determine which IIA Dallas Chapter members have submitted articles or spoken in February, or earlier if not reported. Each speaking engagement on internal auditing that a Dallas Chapter member completes will earn the Chapter 1 credit per CPD hour. Each full article, Roundtable article, Fraud Finding, etc. submitted that meets basic editorial guidelines will earn 5 credits. For each full article published 20 credits are earned. Each internal audit related article published in any other trade or professional journal that is authored by a chapter member is 5 credits.

To report your writing and speaking go to http://dallasiia.org/Speaking.htm and complete the provided form by March 15, 2005. Contact Magdalena Kovats (214-777-0581 or magdalena.kovats@resources-us.com) if you have any questions.
