Fraud in Title I-Funded Tutoring Programs

OIG issued a Management Information Report titled "Fraud in Title I-Funded Tutoring Programs" (see link below). In this report, OIG presented the findings and results of investigations and audits conducted on the provision of Supplemental Educational Services (SES) in multiple States over the past decade.  OIG found serious instances of fraud, waste, and abuse of Federal funds in the provision of SES.


How to Use This Resource:  While the OIG's report addresses the results of investigations relating to the provision of SES, it is important to note that identified issues are relevant to any Department program that allows grantees to contract with third parties to deliver services, particularly when services are billed on a per-child basis.
