BDO Grows Anti-Fraud & Corruption Services

BDO Consulting announced the expansion of its Global Forensics practice with the addition of Momar Ndiaye as a director in the New York office. Ndiaye, who has significant experience investigating malfeasance in Africa and Southeast Asia, has worked with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and global financial institutions for more than 15 years on forensic accounting, compliance and regulatory matters involving financial reporting and internal controls.

Prior to joining BDO, Ndiaye served as an investigations team leader for the Office of the Inspector General of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, where he addressed areas of noncompliance and responded to allegations of fraud and financial misconduct. He also worked as a senior investigator at the United Nations Office of Internal Oversight Services and its Iraq Oil-for-Food Programme. In addition, Ndiaye was a team leader in financial advisory services at PricewaterhouseCoopers providing complex litigation and corporate investigation services.

“NGOs and other global organizations are facing significant new challenges when it comes to managing fraud and corruption risks,” said Carl W. Pergola, executive director of BDO Consulting. “Momar’s expansive international investigation experience from the Global Fund in Geneva to the United Nations, makes him a key addition to our expanding Global Forensics practice.”

“Momar’s global perspective on financial fraud, procurement and complex accounting investigations make him a highly-valued member of the team,” said Glenn Pomerantz, partner and global forensics practice leader. “Working collaboratively with BDO Member Firms throughout Africa and Southeast Asia to deliver exceptional client service, Momar’s work preserving the financial well-being of NGOs adds depth to our practice in this area, as we assist clients to mitigate fraud and corruption, and promote enhanced compliance.”

“BDO’s strong reputation for investigative work in the international marketplace drew me to the firm,” said Ndiaye. “As companies expand across borders and NGOs remain committed to providing financial and material resources to communities worldwide, BDO’s breadth, depth and quality of resources will be required to help our global clients with their compliance and investigative needs.”
