Combating Improper Payments

Federal government programs lowered their error rate from 5.3 percent in FY 2010 to 4.7 percent in FY 2011, representing approximately $115 billion in improper payments. Despite the progress that agencies are making in lowering the government-wide error rate, the Administration is still very focused on reducing improper payments, and needs your help to identify innovative approaches that significantly boost payment accuracy across government programs.

Gaining Efficiencies across Programs

Integrating program processes and systems will reduce red tape and enable staff to focus on delivering services to the public.

A Partnership For Solutions Beyond Silos

By improving connections among Federal, state, and local governments, we can meet the 21st century challenges facing benefits programs.

The Partnership Fund for Program Integrity Innovation

Welcome to, the website for the Partnership Fund for Program Integrity Innovation at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The Partnership Fund seeks innovative ideas for improving the stewardship of federal dollars to create an efficient, effective government model for the 21st century.

Our Purpose: Using funds appropriated by Congress, the Partnership Fund will fund pilot projects and evaluations that test ideas for improving Federal assistance programs through the following measures:

  • Reducing improper payments
  • Improving administrative efficiency
  • Improving service delivery
  • Protecting and improving program access for eligible beneficiaries

New Pilots Funded

On March 13, OMB announced funding for two new Partnership Fund pilots. These new pilots will demonstrate new ways of doing business that can improve government efficiency and results across a broad range of programs. For details, visit the Pilots page
