During his speech, before an invited audience of 400 in St. Charles, Missouri, the President will discuss the presidential memorandum he has signed intended to increase “payment recapture audits” in the federal government. According to the official White House statement, these “specialized private auditors financial incentives to root out improper payments, and have been demonstrated through pilot programs to be highly effective.” The White House estimates that the audits could recoup, over the course of three years, at least $2 billion in taxpayer dollars.
