This panel will discuss the decade-long efforts by two administrations, Congress, the Government Accountability Office, the Office of Management and Budget and federal and state agencies to identify, measure, track and resolve improper payments. The session will highlight key milestones over the years and present a case study of how one state leveraged technology and behavioral sciences to affect positive change in benefit recipients that resulted in a reduction in improper payments and saving to taxpayers.
