Prime contractor’s assigned project manager to oversee the client’s Preliminary Analysis – Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act (IPERA) contract.  IPERA requires executive-branch agencies to identify programs and activities susceptible to significant improper payments, estimate annual amounts improperly paid, and report these estimates and the actions taken to reduce future improper payments. Our team provided analysis of the client’s improper compensation and pension benefit payments data to determine the level of preventable improper payments under current laws, regulations, and policies, and the feasibility of pursuing payment recapture audits of improper payments under IPERA.
