As government agencies shape their goals and priorities for a new administration, they continue to target waste, fraud, and abuse (FWA). These issues affect how organizations develop internal processes or how they roll out new initiatives. Improper management of FWA can damage organizations in several areas -- from the organization’s overall reputation to the implementation of strategic imperatives.
The tools agencies use to combat FWA are more sophisticated than ever. They incorporate cloud computing, automation, and artificial intelligence. If properly deployed, agencies can catch FWA red flags before they develop, deal with them in real time, and stay focused on the larger mission. The result is not just a cleaner organization, but a more productive and successful one.
What solutions exist to combat such issues? How are they being addressed when found? And what role does emerging tech play in the fight against fraud, waste, and abuse? Nextgov hosted public and private sector leaders to answer these questions, share best practices, and offer new solutions for FWA management.
