Leveraging Analytics to Understand and Prevent Government Improper Payments

Improper payments have always been a major challenge to the US federal government. In 2019 alone, the government issued $175 billion in improper payments through various agencies. As elected officials continue to pass stimulus bills like the CARES Act to mitigate the economic effects of COVID-19, it’s imperative to understand where improper payments come from and how to prevent them.
