House Oversight Panel Passes Proposed Bill on Fraud Prevention, Analytics

1 min read

CongressThe House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has approved the proposed Fraud Reduction and Analytics Act of 2015, which seeks governmentwide guidelines for real-time measures to counter fraud at federal agencies.

The office of Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) said Wednesday the bill also covers the formation of a working group that will utilize big data and create data channels to help counter fraud.

Connolly, who is the ranking member in the House oversight panel’s government operations subcommittee, introduced the bill alongside subcommittee Chair Mark Meadows (R-N.C.).

“Detecting, preventing and eliminating fraud within our federal agencies is an important bipartisan issue that will save taxpayer dollars… Federal agencies must be proactive, not reactive in their anti-fraud efforts,” Meadows said.

The bill will be sent for deliberation on the House floor.
