The Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act (I.P.E.R.A.) was signed into Law by President Obama on July 22, 2010. It aims to reduce wasteful payments to individuals and contractors by $50 billion until 2012. Under the I.P.E.R.A. rules, companies must adhere to a whole host of new standards including monitoring and measuring the performance of annual risk assessments.
It’s clear that companies and agencies must have a thorough understanding of the new I.P.E.R.A. provisions as well as its potential impact to their business relations.
