Faculty and grant administrators: Attend fraud awareness, grant management seminar

Though universities have been long viewed as examples of organizations that maintain high ethical standards and where the fraudulent schemes common to the workday are unthinkable, increasingly, examples of fraud, waste and abuse are surfacing in media. Stories involving external funding become particularly newsworthy and can lead to reputational damage for the university and/or others leading research efforts. Further, they could lead to monetary penalties, shutdown of existing research efforts, reduced future funding and an increase in federal audits and oversight.

Internal Audit, the University Compliance Office and Office of Research Administration will present seminars on fraud awareness and grant management for faculty members and grant administrators. Each session will cover leading grant-management practices and methods to assist individuals in preventing, detecting and reporting suspicious activities in labs and departments.

Seminars for faculty members (choose one date) will be held:

  • May 2, 4-5 p.m., School of Medicine E401.
  • June 12, 4-5 p.m., Wolstein Research Building 1413

Seminars for grant administrators (choose one date) will be held:

  • May 9, 1–2 p.m., Biomedical Research Building 105
  • June 14, 12:30-2 p.m., Biomedical Research Building 105

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
