Webinar Date: March 4, 2019
Hosted by: KPMG Government Institute

The presenters, Laura Price, Partner and Government Risk Consulting Leader, Jeff Steinhoff, Managing Director of KPMG’s Government Institute, and Edmund Green, Managing Director, Risk Consulting, authored a related white paper in collaboration with AFERM.
