Educational institutions have a distinct set of challenges when it comes to deterring and mitigating fraud, waste and other ethics violations.
The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ 2012 Report to Nations found that the education sector is experiencing an up-tick in fraud and abuse incidents. The report showed that 6.4 percent of reported fraud or ethics violations occurred in education, versus 5 percent in the previous year. The top three types of fraud reported in the sector were:
- Billing 31.8%
- Expense Reimbursements 26.1%
- Corruption 23.9%
