Imagine an entity with a money fund. This entity defines some budgets which it annually distributes to different applicants.
Example data set:
| party | year | funding, $K | | A | 2018 | 0 | | B | 2018 | 10 |
So in the two records we see that in 2018 applicant A got no funding and applicant B got $10K funding.
How would you search for possible wrongdoings in such a data set?
Are there any specific/advanced algorithms to do so?
I am asking to learn whether there is more to it than just the simple heuristics like "are there entities getting significant portions of funding all the time".
