What is Fraud?

A misleading, deliberate action carried out to obtain dishonest or unethical gain.

Fraud can take various forms and can happen at any organization despite the existence of effective internal controls and policies. The Fraud Reporting Program, sponsored by the Office of the President, requires the involvement of all to protect our community. Please help us make the program a success by reporting suspected improper or questionable acts.
