Improve oversight on Social Security payments
The Veterans Administration has paid out billions in benefits to deceased veterans. Improving system oversight so that mistakes like this do not happen is extremely necessary, and could save between $37 and 45 million (based on just one sample). However, as of April 2019, GAO has VA health care and federal IT acquisitions on its High Risk List, as the VA lacks IT systems to support critical processes and does not implement related federal law, making oversight difficult.
