Poll Title: Employee Rotation for Key/Sensitive Roles in Purchase-to-Pay

Background: Given that the Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) process involves cash disbursements, it’s critical that companies have robust processes and controls in place for this area. One control that can prove useful is periodic rotation of duties, because it limits employees’ time to develop fraudulent practices and ensures such practices are more likely to be detected. On a more positive note, rotation of duties also facilitates cross-training and improved depth of personnel skill and succession. Unfortunately, regular rotations can prove difficult to implement when groups are small and resources limited.
