The Institute

Institute for Small Business Internal Controls


What is an Institute and why the need to develop an Institute for Small Business Internal Controls?


Well, mainly because we’re tired. Tired of the consistent types of victimization of small businesses that we have experienced in our practice related to internal occupational fraud.  


The noun form of the word “institute” is defined as “a society or organization for carrying on a particular work as of an educational character”. The verb form of the word is defined as “to bring into use or practice”.



The Mission


So, it is with both the noun and verb forms that the Institute for Small Business Internal Controls was formed...“to establish an organization with the specific educational purpose of training small businesses in bringing in to use or practice those internal controls / anti-fraud programs designed to prevent and/or detect internal occupational fraud”. This purpose IS our Mission Statement.
