Detect and Fight Fraud in Government

Each state agency shall comply with the following initiatives and directives to prevent, detect, and eliminate fraud, waste, and abuse in state government. The state agency workgroup shall submit a report to the Office of the Governor. The report shall include:
1. risk assessment tools to help agencies determine vulnerabilities;
2. best practices that eliminate fraud in contracting, contract management and procurement; and
3. common components for fraud prevention and elimination programs.

Each agency must designate a contact person for its fraud prevention and elimination activities; the contact person shall report directly to the agency executive director, commissioner, or board chair.
Each agency shall develop a fraud prevention program that includes, at a minimum, the recommended common components developed by the state agency workgroup. These programs must be in place by October 1, 2004. If an agency already has a fraud prevention and elimination program, the agency shall ensure that its program includes the recommended common components.

Each agency shall review its existing rules, policies, organizational structure and statutes to identify changes needed to better detect and fight fraud.

Each agency shall report its actions to comply with this executive order and any recommended statutory changes to improve its fraud prevention and elimination efforts to the anti-fraud coordinator in the Office of the Governor no later than October 1, 2004.
