3.20 Grant Fraud, Waste, and Abuse

Detection of Grant Fraud

Non-federal entities are encouraged to:

  • Be aware of common grant fraud schemes. This knowledge is the best way to reduce or even eliminate the risk of fraud.
  • Adopt effective fraud risk-management efforts within the organization, and encourage the  subrecipients to do the same in order to prevent and detect fraud as early as possible.
