The Liability of Colleges and Universities for Fraud, Waste, and Abuse in Federally Funded Grants and Projects.
Gordon, Steven D.
New Directions for Higher Education, n95 p43-54 Fall 1996
The federal government's war on fraud, waste, and abuse in expenditure of federal funds has reached college campuses. Institutions that fail to heed this development are vulnerable to harsh sanctions. They must tighten accounting practices and recognize their liability for fraudulent practices of faculty and students. Internal investigations and procedural reviews are important for management and loss prevention. (MSE)
