The Recovery Board is teaming with the nonpartisan National Academy of Public Administration to solicit ideas from the public on how to prevent fraud, waste, or abuse of Recovery funds. The Board and the Academy are hosting the National Dialogue on Innovative Tools to Prevent and Detect Fraud, Waste, and Abuse from 8 a.m. October 17 through 8 a.m. October 24.
Those interested may register on the 17th, join the dialogue and provide your input to the following questions:
• What management practices, policies, programs, and incentives would improve financial stewardship and help prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse?
• What specific governmental, public, or proprietary data sources could help the Recovery Board prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse?
• What technologies or systems do you think would be effective in integrating and aggregating diverse types of data?
• What types of risk models would identify entities receiving Recovery Act funds as most vulnerable to fraud, waste, or abuse?
• What performance metrics could be applied to Recovery Act funded programs and recipients to improve oversight and accountability?
When the dialogue concludes, the ideas will be analyzed and reviewed as the Board continues its efforts to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse of Recovery funds.
