Executive Order 13520 “Reducing Improper Payments and Eliminating Waste in
Federal Programs” requires that the Secretary of Agriculture submit a quarterly
report on high-dollar improper payments to the Inspector General. The Office of
Management and Budget (OMB), on March 22, 2010, issued government-wide guidance
(M-10-13) on the implementation of Executive Order 13520. USDA is publishing this
report to comply with Executive Order 13520. The table below provides the high-dollar
