Overseers fear VA's new appeals modernization will go the way of past failed projects

Overseers fear VA's new appeals modernization will go the way of past failed projects | Veterans Affairs and Veterans News from HadIt.com | Scoop.it

According to deadline set under law, VA is supposed to implement the new appeals process by Feb. 19, 2019.

“Right now, I don’t think they’re prepared to have all of the information they’re going to need in order to certify that they’re ready to move forward, ” GAO Comptroller General Gene Dodaro told the House VA Committee at a hearing earlier this week. “Based on the plan so far, I’m not confident that they’ll be ready by February 2019 unless they deal with these gaps and have a fully informed plan.”

Most notably, the department doesn’t have a clear schedule for implementing the IT systems it needs to support the new appeals process. VA has an IT plan that details the next six months, but Dodaro said it doesn’t go far enough.
