Ensuring Program Integrity and Efficiency in Nutrition Assistance Programs

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

4:00 P.M. ET
State and federal lawmakers have been concerned about ensuring that the Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP) and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Woman Infants and Children (WIC) benefits go to those who are eligible.  Join NCSL Foundation for State Legislatures’ Hunger Partnership for a webinar on combating fraud and theft in federal nutrition assistance programs. Our panel of expert speakers combine federal, business and law enforcement perspectives on how to ensure program integrity. We will hear what the USDA has done and their ongoing efforts to reduce improper payments and errors, pursue recipient fraud and combat abuse and misuse of benefits. We will hear from an EBT systems expert on the role of EBT in combating fraud and increasing accountability, and from the business community on how they are confronting the role of organized crime and how theft increases costs. What are cost-effective strategies states can use?  How can legislators partner with the federal government, state agencies and others to combat program errors, theft and fraud? How can we aid struggling families and seniors to put food on the table and ensure that taxpayer dollars are spent appropriately?

Undersecretary Kevin Concannon, Food and Nutrition Services, U.S. Department of Agriculture
Bard Shollenberger, Vice President, State Government Solutions,  Xerox State & Local Solutions, Inc.
Rick Gunselman,  Security Manager, Global Corporate Security, Mead Johnson Nutrition

Moderator:
