Juliano, will be the recipient of the Walker Award, a recognition bestowed upon the person receiving the highest annual score on the Certified Fraud Examiners (CFE) Examination. This recognition bespeaks of the COA’s commitment to professionalism and global excellence.

A total of fifteen (15) Management Systems International-US Agency for International Development (MSI-USAID) sponsored COAn examinees took and successfully passed the CFE Examination.

Atty. Juliano bested other examinees not just from the Philippines but from other countries as well.

The CFE examination, organized by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), tests proficiency and competence in the four primary areas of fraud examination: Financial Transactions and Fraud Schemes, Law, Investigation, and Fraud Prevention and Deterrence.

Being the largest anti-fraud organization in the world and the premier provider of anti-fraud training and education, ACFE has made a contribution in reducing fraud worldwide. Its
