Exclamation Misuse of VA Funds To Develop the Health Care Claims

Here again is Miss use of $$$$.

evaluated the merits of two confidential Hotline allegations received after we published the Review of Alleged Misuse of VA Funds To Develop the Health Care Claims Processing System in March 2015. The complainants alleged that the Chief Business Office (CBO) continued to spend about $11 million of medical support and compliance (MS&C) appropriations on Health Care Claims Processing System (HCPS) development from August through September 2014, despite being told by OIG during an April 2014 meeting of OIG, CBO, and Financial Services Center that they should have used the Information Technology (IT) Systems appropriation.

I'm sure they'll appoint a committee to look into that. That committee will need secretarial staff, a copy budget, IT support, office space, and travel per diem, all of which will suck funds from those assigned to care for veterans. In the end, a report will quietly be filed stating that mistakes were made, mostly be people who will have already retired and whose benefits will not be garnished. Meanwhile, down at the VA clinic they will be complying with budget reductions by filling doctor billets with traveling PAs straight out of school and by reusing catheters and Band-aids.
