STATE & LOCAL INVESTMENT IN ANTI-WASTE, FRAUD, AND ABUSE (WFA) SOLUTIONS, 2009-2014
INPUT estimates that state governments will lose $67 billion in 2010 to waste, fraud, and abuse (WFA) across five major benefits programs. These programs?including Medicaid, unemployment insurance (UI), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), housing assistance, and food stamps?account for nearly 80% of all federal benefits spending at the state and local levels.

- Audit & Recovery
Although many state and local governments have already invested in these technologies?primarily for Medicaid, there are a number of current factors converging to draw increased demand and spending in these areas. The report provides updates on the ways in which the state fiscal crises and the Obama administration?s anti-WFA agenda will drive consumption. Combined demand for these technologies by U.S. state and local government agencies will increase from $735 million in 2009 to nearly $1.1 billion in 2014, at a 5-year Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.6% during the forecast period.
As a key component of the report, INPUT conducted interviews with programmatic experts in the public and private sectors, including not-for-profit organizations, to identify and understand the emerging trends, key drivers and obstacles, and organizational willingness and readiness to adopt anti-WFA technologies.
INPUT draws upon its extensive expertise on the government IT industry to analyze and forecast state and local spending across the five technology areas. Key market drivers currently shaping the adoption and implementation of the profiled technology areas include:
- Financial necessity/cost savings
- Stimulus-driven intergovernmental transparency and accountability initiatives
- Emerging demand for technologies that support performance management
