Reducing the nearly $125 billion in improper payments – The Accountable Government Initiative
As part of its Accountable Government Initiative, the Administration has moved to streamline how government operates to save money, improve performance and make government more open and responsive to the needs of the American people. One of the biggest targets is reducing the nearly $125 billion in improper payments made last fiscal year alone. Advances in digital disbursement have increased the speed and ease of payments, but the downside is that in the Digital Age improper payments can accumulate quickly. Thankfully, many of those same new technologies are providing government with increased ability to prevent and detect emerging patterns of fraud, waste and abuse long before any funds are disbursed.
In this session we will present program integrity solutions that work, and analyze those that do not. The Workshop will demonstrate how and why effective oversight is essential in the lightning speed context of information transactions today. Further it will address skills and tools, such as internal controls, predictive analytics, computer forensics and asset tracing, giving participants a window on how to better manage the various types of improper payment scenarios that often go undetected in the normal course of business.
