Jamie Petrone estimated that 90% of all computer equipment orders she made for Yale’s medical school over eight years were bogus.
A former administrator at the Yale University School of Medicine has pleaded guilty to stealing $40 million from the school in a nearly decade-long computer and electronics purchasing fraud.
