  The Auditor of State respectfully requests Controlling Board approval for a waiver of competitive selection in the amount of $222,500.00 from fund 5840, ALI 070603 (Training Program), in FY18, to contract with Central Ohio Chapter (COC) Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Columbus, Franklin County, for co-sponsorship of 2018 Emerging Trends Fraud Conference.  
  This is a two day conference to be held May 7th and 8th, 2018. COC will prepare a budget and contract with selected conference venue for facility rental, breakfast, lunch, refreshments, and audio visual. In addition, COC will enter into a contract with non-Auditor of State conference speakers, provide volunteers, and provide staff to act as moderators. Upon completion of services, COC will submit to the Auditor of State an invoice detailing the scope of services provided and copies of receipts and contracts documenting costs incurred.

Auditor of State payment to COC for services rendered will be derived from fees charged to attend the annual conference (i.e. non-GRF).   Approximately 650 individuals are expected to attend the conference. Fees charged are $350 for public entity individuals and $400 for private attendees.   

The Agreement between the Auditor of State and COC allows up to 75 Auditor of State employees to attend the conference at no charge to the Auditor of State.   Audit staff attendees earn 16 Continuing Professional Education credits (CPE). Lawyers attending can earn 13 Continuing legal education credits (CLE).

The $222,500 expense estimate for the 2018 fraud conference is based on 650 attendees and the projected revenue/cost associated with the attendance estimate. The Auditor of State will reimburse the Association of Certified Fraud examiners for the following costs: venue costs, breakfast and lunch for 2 days, audio visual, videotape, and conference speakers.
