POPA conducts fraud awareness at the Postmasters Training

Pohnpei Office of the Public Auditor

POFraudKolonia, Pohnpei- On January 16, 2019, the Pohnpei Office of the Public Auditor (POPA) started the New Year right by presenting a Fraud Awareness Briefing (FAB) at the FSM Postal Services, Headquarters. It was part of POPA’s proactive efforts to promote good governance and outreach to the public to be aware of the values and benefits of POPA in relation to fighting fraud and corruption. The training attendees include all the Postmasters from Pohnpei, Yap, Chuuk and Kosrae with the FSM Postmaster General and FSM Customs & Tax Administration.  It was the Postmasters Annual Meeting.  Although it was a small crowd, the presentation was a success because of the active involvement and discussions from the participants.

POPA will be able to achieve their goal on their awareness program which is to leave a great impact among the participants.  It is also good to hear that the FSM Postal Services are aware of the importance of management oversight, internal controls and enforcing their policies and procedures in their respective offices. As Postmaster General Ginger Porter Mida said “It is time to stop fraud and corruption, management plays a key role in preventing it.”
