Improper payments getting scrutiny at Federal agencies
Monday - 6/21/2010, 6:56pm EDT
"The Obama administration is attacking the $100 billion improper payments problem on yet another front.
"Along with expanding the use of recovery audits by vendors, the White House now is focusing more attention on the agency processes.
"President Barack Obama Friday signed a memo requiring agencies 'to review current pre-payment and pre-award procedures and ensure that a thorough review of available databases with relevant information on eligibility occurs before the release of any federal funds.'
"These databases now are known as the 'Do Not Pay List.' The Office of Management and Budget must provide the White House a plan for further integration of these disparate databases by mid-October."
