Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 1360, Improper Payments Agency Cooperation Enhancement Act of 2013 [open pdf - 21KB]
This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on July 31, 2013. From the Document: "S. 1360 would require federal agencies to expand their use of information on deceased individuals to improve accuracy of payments and for other purposes. To that end, the bill would require the Social Security Administration (SSA) to share information on deaths with more agencies and for a broader range of purposes. In addition, it would require the Office of Management and Budget to provide guidance, convene a task force on sharing information on the deaths of federal retirees, and submit reports to the Congress. Finally, the bill would require the Secretary of the Treasury to report efforts to reduce improper payments and require the Postal Service to share information on delivery addresses for the purposes of reducing improper payments. Enacting S. 1360 could reduce direct spending; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that such effects would probably be insignificant for each year over the next 10 years. The bill also would not have a significant effect on revenues. CBO estimates that implementing S. 1360 would have no significant net impact on discretionary spending."
