Fraud has become a hot topic in Indian Country. Tribes throughout the country have reported various frauds including embezzlement, asset misappropriation, kickbacks, skimming, and bid-rigging. Over the course of over 32 years, DONHAM & ASSOCIATES, CPA, LLC has seen all of these. We are determined to help Indian Country prevent and detect fraud and ensure every Tribal dollar is safe from misappropriation.
Few accounting firms today work exclusively for Tribal Governments and Tribal entities. Even fewer provide certified Fraud Examiner services for those Governments and Entities. DONHAM & ASSOCIATES, CPA, LLC is one of the select few that provide fraud examination services only within Indian Country.
Most Tribes that we speak with think that their annual audit is all they need to prevent and detect fraud. This is simply not the case. Only 16% of Governmental fraud is detected through annual audits!
Here are four more reasons why you should consider DONHAM & ASSOCIATES, CPA, LLC to help combat fraud within your Tribal organization:
1. Government is one of the three most commonly victimized industries by fraud.* 2. The median loss for Government Organizations (2008-2010) was $100,000.* 3. Corruption accounted for nearly one-third of all governmental fraud.* 4. John Donham (Founder) has personally found and/or investigated fraud that resulted in the
conviction and incarceration of 37 Tribal employees or officials.
