SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In October 1986, Congress enacted the PFCRA, Public Law 99–509 (codified at 31 U.S.C. 3801–3812). The PFCRA established an administrative remedy against any person who makes a false claim or written statement to any of certain Federal agencies and against any person causing such fraudulent actions. In brief, it requires the affected Federal agencies to follow certain procedures in recovering penalties and assessments against people who file false claims or statements for which the liability is $150,000 or less. Initially, the PFCRA did not apply to the NEA. However, pursuant to section 10 of the Inspector General Reform Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110–409), the scope of PFCRA’s coverage has been expanded to include NEA. The PFCRA requires each affected agency to promulgate rules and regulations necessary to implement its provisions. Following the PFCRA’s enactment, at the request of the President’s Council on Integrity and Efficiency (PCIE), an interagency task force was established under the leadership of the Department of Health and Human Services to develop model regulations for implementation of the PFCRA by all affected agencies.
