The U.S. federal government operates or oversees a vast array of public–facing points of transaction. These transactions cover a variety of different matters, each with its own level of exposure to fraud, and each with its own consequences should fraud be allowed to occur. With operations as diverse as Homeland Security, Social Security, Postal Services, Military Bases, Criminal Courts and Prisons, and Diplomatic Offices worldwide – it is clear that the federal government must find a way to integrate federal fraud prevention efforts across its institutions to help avoid duplicative efforts and resource fragmentation associated with one–off or silo approach.
