This goal will:   reduce the amount of cash lost to the taxpayer through incorrect payments; clarify and streamline reporting and compliance requirements to focus on actions that
make a difference; and partner with states to address improper payments in programs that they administer using Federal funds.
While all improper payments can compromise
citizens’ trust in Government, only a portion
stem from fraud or lead to actual loss of taxpayer
dollars. In addition to the incorrect
payments themselves, improper payments also
impose costs associated with fixing mistakes
and recovering funds. 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 Federal Government will:  reduce the annual amount of cash lost to the taxpayer; reduce burden on agencies to help focus their efforts strategically; and increase collaboration with states to further
reduce cash lost.
