Kansas State University administrators and all levels of management are responsible for preventing and detecting instances of fraud and related misconduct and for establishing and maintaining proper internal controls that provide security and accountability for the resources entrusted to them. Administrators are also expected to recognize risks and exposures inherent in their area of responsibility, and be aware of indications of fraud or related misconduct. Responses to such allegations or indicators should be consistent.
The Internal Audit Office will work in consultation with University Attorneys, administrators, law enforcement and/or other levels of management in instances where fraud or related misconduct is suspected. The Internal Audit Office is also available to assist administrators with ensuring that proper internal preventative measures are in place.
