AuditMyBooks™, the creators of products that help small businesses protect their money by detecting errors and fraud, today announced the award of a $30,000 Phase 1B Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The grant is a supplement to the $150,000 Phase 1 grant received by AuditMyBooks in July 2010. The research supported by the NSF will enable AuditMyBooks to extend its current Analyzer™ product line which automatically scans accounting systems to detect errors and fraud. The Phase 1B research is aimed specifically at improving the accuracy of the fraud prediction technology AuditMyBooks is developing.

Dr. Jennifer Lewis Priestley, Associate Professor of Statistics at Kennesaw State University says, “the research AuditMyBooks is leading will result in the development of advanced statistical methods to analyze financials transactions and identify fraud. Once developed, we expect to be able to extend the analysis to identify accounting errors as well.”

How serious is the fraud problem in the U.S.? The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) estimates that organizations lose 5% of their revenues to fraud, and companies with less than 100 employees represent more than 30% of all fraud cases. ACFE research also shows that small businesses suffer the highest median losses of any sized company at nearly $150,000 per occurrence. According to Steve Bachman, CEO of AuditMyBooks, “As a direct result of fraud, businesses often are forced to lay off employees, stop payments to suppliers, reduce quality levels or cut other vital spending in hopes of recouping losses. In the worst cases, companies may even be forced to close.”

The NSF SBIR Program was created to increase the incentive and opportunity for small firms to undertake cutting-edge, high risk, high quality scientific or engineering research with a high potential economic payoff. SBIR grants are a non-dilutive form of R&D funding provided by 11 agencies of the Federal government. The application process is competitive and requires a qualified scientific team, innovative approach and a rigorous R&D plan. AuditMyBooks worked with SBIR Georgia, a service of ATDC, to construct a compelling proposal and bring together a top-notch team. The result of these efforts is non-dilutive funding to develop their next generation product.
