COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio has used a new data tool to identify dozens of duplicate payments made by state government offices since the start of the year.

A pilot review of InnovateOhio Platform technologies found 56 erroneous payments over 22 different state agencies, boards and commissions between January and September. They totaled nearly $118,000.

Republican Lt. Gov. Jon Husted said the pilot review shows how it’s possible to save money and make government more efficient by centralizing data through the technology office.
