Francesca Ndenda, CFA, and Grace Rutabingwa work in the same department for New Age Managers with Rutabingwa reporting to Ndenda. Ndenda learns that Rutabingwa received a Notice of Enquiry from the Professional Conduct Program at CFA Institute regarding a potential cheating violation when he sat for the CFA exam in June. As Rutabingwa’s supervisor, Ndenda is afraid the behavior of Rutabingwa will be seen as a violation of the CFA Code and Standards. Does Ndenda most likely have cause for concern? A Yes. B No, because her responsibilities do not apply. C No, not until Rutabingwa is found guilty of cheating.
— B is correct because a supervisor’s responsibilities relate to detecting and preventing violations by anyone subject to their supervision or authority regarding activities they supervise. Ndenda had no way of detecting and/or preventing Rutabingwa from cheating during the CFA exam, if in fact that is what he did, an event she did not attend. A is incorrect because Ndenda does not have supervisory responsibility for Rutabingwa when he takes his CFA exam. C is incorrect because supervisor responsibility in this case does not apply, as Rutabingwa was not under the supervision of Ndenda when he took the CFA exam.
Regarding the violation: really not trying to be difficult and to be honest it will improve my understanding of the standards, but can you please explain why it is not a violation? On the mock itself there is boilerplate stating posting to any website is strictly prohibited and may result in disciplinary action. I get it is allowed to share mock questions with other currently registered candidates, but AF does not to my knowledge cross-reference CFAIs databases of active candidates and the forum in any case is browsable without registration.
