Stimulus spending will surge to nearly $250 billion dollars in 2010 as the federal government ramps up economic recovery efforts. The stimulus program should provide considerable opportunities for businesses across an array of industries.

Companies participating in the program will do well to take the government's accountability pronouncements to heart and make a serious commitment to transparency and fraud prevention.
