States, Locals Invited To Comment on What Works
On a new website, Partner4Solutions, the federal government is asking state and local governments for ideas on reducing improper federal payments.
The website and request for input are part of the Obama administration’s efforts to reduce the estimated $98 billion in improper payments made in fiscal 2009.
“We know that states and local governments are already addressing these issues head-on and have identified many innovative approaches. We see this as an opportunity to better understand some of the on-the-ground best practices. Please join us as a partner by contributing your ideas and suggestions,” the website says.
