DeFreitas & Associates (D&A) was an attendee at the recent two-day workshop (September 19 & 20, 2012) held by the Caribbean Institute of Forensic Accounting (CIFA) in Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) at the Grenadine House Hotel. The workshop focused on the Fundamentals in Fraud and Forensic Auditing.
Stan DeFreitas and Indira Narine, both Associate Consultants at D&A, attended the workshop on behalf of the firm.
Not only did the workshop provide continuing professional development credits for our team members, it also provided a wealth of valuable information on the area of forensic accounting and auditing through both theory and case studies presented by the lecturer and President of CIFA, Mr. Stephon Grey.
Stan DeFreitas stated that “our firm has done work in the area of forensic accounting and auditing for clients but after attending the workshop, it will definitely be an emphasized area of our firm’s services offered going forward.”
