About this paper
In October 2010, SAS sponsored a TechWeb survey of 327 federal, state and local government decision makers to examine the state of fraud and explore key directional trends in using business analytics to combat it. This paper covers the results of that survey, which found that while many agencies regard their ability to use data analysis to combat fraud, abuse and improper payments as good or excellent, most organizations are not fully mature in the use of analytics.
