There is great pressure on government organizations to make the most of their operating budgets. A significant way to address this challenge is to limit or eliminate waste and the unintended use of public funds. In recent years, the Federal Government has re-doubled its efforts to stop the misapplication of funds—with aggressive programs across many agencies—from the General Services Administration to the Recovery Board to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. With hotlines, expanded Inspector General investigations, anti-fraud tools, and public-private partnerships, the goal is to limit fraud, prosecute criminals masquerading as legitimate providers or beneficiaries, and build systems that make future abuse more difficult and detectable from the outset.
