USDA FOUND TO HAVE MADE $6 BILLION IN IMPROPER PAYMENTS
Red River Farm Network reports:

USDA's Office of Inspector General (OIG) has found that USDA made $6.2 billion in improper payments in 2013.

The OIG says this was the third consecutive year that USDA did not comply with the Improper Payment Information Act.

Of USDA's 300 programs, 16 administered by seven component agencies are considered vulnerable to significant improper payments.

Those seven include the Food and Nutrition Service, Farm Service Agency, Commodity Credit Corporation, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Rural Development, Forest Service, and Risk Management Agency.

The School Breakfast Program had the highest rate of improper payments last year, at over 25 percent.
