UI Payment Integrity Information

On November 20, 2009, President Obama signed Executive Order 13520. The purpose of this order is to reduce improper payments by intensifying efforts to eliminate payment error, waste, fraud, and abuse in the major programs administered by the Federal Government, while continuing to ensure that Federal programs serve and provide access to their intended beneficiaries. The order adopts a comprehensive set of policies, including transparency and public scrutiny of significant payment errors throughout the Federal Government.
