About this paper
Improper payments act like a lead weight on state and municipal governments, limiting their abilities to balance budgets and provide high-quality services for citizens and customers. But when the public sector uses a data-driven approach to risk management and invests in innovative technologies, the total cost of fraud, waste and abuse falls.
This issue brief from the Government Business Council and SAS uses case studies to explore how sophisticated analytic techniques can help state and local agencies ensure the integrity of their programs throughout each stage of the payments process.
