High-Priority Programs and Programs over $100M in Monetary Loss

The government can achieve the greatest return on investment for the taxpayer by ensuring that improper payments are eliminated in the highest-risk programs, otherwise known as high-priority programs. These programs have improper payments estimates that exceed $2 billion annually.

High-priority programs are designated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and agencies with high-priority programs have additional reporting requirements.

To reduce the monetary loss to the tax payers by issuing payments correctly the first time, in FY 2018 High Priority Programs will be combined with programs that have over a $100 Million or more in monetary loss.  This is an opportunity to improve the efficiency of government programs by focusing on reducing incorrect payment that result in monetary loss.

Determination criteria and reporting requirements for high-priority programs are found in OMB Guidance Circular A-123, Appendix C
