This paper aims to explain the development of fraud prevention disclosure index (FPDI) for Malaysian public universities.
The paper reported a comprehensive review on fraud prevention and control plans of several international policies and of local and international universities.
The final 8 categories and 100 items under review have been developed in an instrument, the proposed FPDI, to measure the level of commitment of public universities in preventing fraud.
The FPDI will serve as an evaluation tool to measure the level of commitment of public universities toward preventing fraud practices through disclosure practices.
The FPDI is hoped to inculcate anti-fraud culture amongst public universities and to promote accountability, widen and strengthen good organization’s ethics, create ethical work place environment and enhance corporate governance framework by instilling a culture of professional conduct that is free from corruption.
This paper is among the first paper that develops the index specifically to measure the universities’ level of commitment to prevent fraud.
