KSDE’s ESSER team shares how to report CARES Act fraud

The Kansas State Department of Education’s Elementary and Secondary Emergency Relief (ESSER) team wants to share how to address CARES Act fraud. 

Signs of fraud include financial conflicts of interest; suspicious or unverifiable vendors; missing school property or records; defective or low-quality products and services; irregularities in contract awards or procedures; and nonexistent students. 

If there is any suspected wrongdoing, report it to the Office of Inspector General by calling 1-800-MIS-USED or visiting the OIG Hotline

Thank you for ensuring these funds are used properly.
