(approximately 90 minutes)
“All the Queen’s Horses” Documentary Film (the Rita Crundwell Story)
How could one Woman steal $53 million without anyone noticing?  Rita Crundwell, city comptroller of Dixon, IL, stole $53 million of public funds over 20 years-making her the perpetrator of the largest case of municipal fraud in American history.  She used the funds to build one of the nation’s leading quarter horse breeding empires, while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing and neglect of public infrastructure.  The movie, ALL THE QUEEN’S HORSES, investigates her crime, lavish lifestyle and the small town she left in her wake.

Join Mary O’Connor, Krisztina Dommer, and Anthony Cervini for an in-depth analysis of the documentary and what went wrong in Dixon.  Additionally, the panelists will provide other examples of frauds and how they were identified and what could have been done differently in those situations.
3:30-4:15 pm Part 3: Internal Control Overview (45 minutes) A strong system of internal controls not only deters fraud, but also supports greater efficiency and legal compliance within the local government business function.  This session identifies types and common methods of employee dishonesty, the role of the external auditor to detect fraud, and the personality of a fraudster.  The COSO system to install adequate internal controls is discussed and the important concept of separation of duties is presented in a practical, easy to apply context.  Fraud can and will happen.  Learn the appropriate way to handle the shock and resulting investigation.
