The President signed Executive Order 13520, “Reducing Improper Payments,” on November 20, 2010. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued the government-wide guidance on the implementation of the Executive Order. The guidance is under Part III, Appendix C of OMB Circular A-123 dated March 22, 2010. This guidance requires agencies with programs susceptible to significant improper payments to submit to the agency’s Inspector General and the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency, and make available to the public, a quarterly report on any high-dollar overpayments identified by the agency.
These quarterly reports begin with the report for the 1st Quarter of FY 2010.
