The econometric model described in this report will provide predicted amounts and rates of improper payments that are reasonably accurate estimates of their actual values. Moreover, the predicted values will allow FNS to effectively track the direction and general magnitude of changes in improper payments in the future, at minimal cost and in a timely manner.
