The Impact of the New Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act to Eliminating Fraud
The Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act (IPERA) was signed into Law by President Obama on July 22, 2010. It aims to reduce wasteful payments to individuals and contractors by $50 billion until 2012. Under the IPERA rules, companies must adhere to a whole host of new standards including monitoring and measuring the performance of annual risk assessments.
It’s clear that companies and agencies must have a thorough understanding of the new IPERA provisions as well as its potential impact to their business relations.
The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel speaker experts and regulators who will share their thoughts in a two-hour webcast. A live interaction with the audience in a question and answer format is also included in this event. Whether you agree with the law or not, one thing is certain, missteps could result in large penalties and fines (not to mention unflattering PR) if you don’t get this right.
