Public money is finite – and when budgets and resources are limited, you must ensure that all available resources are spent on services. It's vital to prevent fraud, error and abuse that drains money from the system. With SAS, you can proactively detect fraud and prevent improper payments across a variety of areas:
Tax and revenue. Close the tax gap by improving audits and investigations through prediction of tax fraud and noncompliance, and finding suspicious activity quickly.
Unemployment and workforce programs. Diagnose the eligibility and legitimacy of claims in unemployment and workers' compensation programs – including employee misclassifications – by analyzing disparate sources of big data.
Benefits programs. Save billions by moving beyond "pay and chase" for national, state, regional and local benefits programs. An integrated workflow enables you to analyze data from multiple sources to detect potential fraud in near-real time, preventing improper payments before they go out.
Procurement fraud. Help your procurement shop make smarter, more efficient agency buys, while ensuring that taxpayer money is spent appropriately from both a compliance (acquisition goals, regulatory and statutory requirements) and legal (e.g., no fraud, waste or abuse) perspective.
Gain a true enterprise view to detect fraud, waste and abuse before money goes out the door. Focus on cases that present the greatest risk by prioritizing alerts before an investigation begins. And constantly improve your detection abilities with a continuous feedback loop. Only SAS enables you to:
Address fraud, waste and abuse at a single-entity level across all program areas. Integrate siloed data from multiple systems – and from external public or purchased data – and apply data quality techniques that support entity resolution.
Detect fraud and improper payments faster using multiple analytics methods. A hybrid analytics approach combines heuristic rules, anomaly detection, predictive modeling, network analysis and more to quickly identify suspicious activities and prioritize them for further investigation.
Fine-tune your detection analytics, and reduce false positives. Feed alert-engine outcomes back into the analytics engine. Stay one step ahead of fraudsters with prepackaged models and detection analytics that are always up-to-date.
