The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is launching the 'Seek to Prevent Fraud, Waste and Abuse (STOP FWA)' initiative that will prevent or identify FWA. The department-wide effort will eliminate duplicative activities and explore potential partnerships with other federal agencies to capitalize on their successes in detecting fraud, waste and abuse. VA will also establish a Prevention of Fraud Waste and Abuse Advisory Committee by July 2017. The committee will provide insight into lessons learned and private-sector practices; identify analytical tools that can be used at VA to prevent FWA; and build effective STOP FWA programs that protect VA's resources.
