About this paper
Law enforcement must go on the offensive with fraud operators – and do so without disrupting the efficient and timely delivery of government benefits. Using several fraud stories as examples, this paper explores how a law enforcement or government agency can use multiple analytical methods to proactively identify crime rings in their infancy – and spare federal tax payers billions of dollars misspent on spurious food stamp (e.g., SNAP) benefit payouts each year. The SAS® Fraud Framework provides an end-to-end framework for detecting, preventing and managing all types of abuse of federal subsidies and loan programs through a hybrid approach that employs several methods for fraud detection.
