❝Historically, the Federal Government has focused on improper payments broadly, including process errors that do not affect money paid, rather than strategically targeting monetary loss to taxpayers.❞
The goal is to demonstrate stewardship of taxpayer dollars by focusing on getting government payments right the first time they are made and preventing monetary loss and to build trust in government by better understanding the nature of improper payments and their relationship to payment integrity.
- To improve the efficiencies of government programs by focusing on getting government payments right the first time they are made and reducing the cost associated with an incorrect payment.
