Eliminating Fraud, Waste & Abuse

SBA is focused on risk and the elimination of fraud, waste, and abuse. The Agency has instituted a three-prong approach to maintaining the integrity of our programs.
  1. Providing greater focus on preventing fraud or abuse before it happens;
  2. Continual monitoring of loans in the SBA portfolio; and
  3. Strengthening our enforcement function by punishing bad actors.

This approach has been extremely successful in our efforts to root out fraud, waste, and abuse in government contracting and we are achieving similar results in lender oversight. To highlight these efforts and to provide increased transparency, SBA has created this website. This website will provide information about the number and types of actions that SBA has taken. We will be updating this page to reflect our continued focus on robust agency enforcement.
