The Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Improvement Act of 2011 expands on legislation passed last year to eliminate improper payments.
The new bill would:
- Require more consistent reporting of improper payments and eliminate voluntary disclosures by contractors.
- Create a "Do Not Pay List" of contractors who have been convicted of fraud or for a similar reason.
- Improving data on deceased beneficiaries.
- Set up a pilot program that uses private companies to help agencies identify improper payments.
