This topic examines the NFP sector, in particular, indigenous organisations and the risk associated with incidents of fraud. As funding to these organisations is limited, a fraudulent event can have dire consequences on employees as well as impact future funding opportunities. Scant attention has been paid to the NFP sector in relation to fraud risk management. The study will help to address this.

If you are interested in researching this topic as part of a Master of Philosophy (Accountancy), and you are applying to commence your degree in Semester 1, 2020 you may be eligible for a School of Accountancy Accelerate Scholarship.
