Alternate Title: Serial No. 113-90: Veterans' Affairs's Longstanding Information Security Weaknesses Continue to Allow Extensive Data Manipulation, Hearing Before the U.S House of Representatives, Committee on Veterans' Affairs, One Hundred Thirteenth Congress, Second Session, November 18, 2014

This testimony is from the November 18, 2015 hearing, "VA's [Veterans' Affairs] Longstanding Information Security Weaknesses Continue to Allow Extensive Data Manipulation," held before the House of Representatives, Committee on Veterans' Affairs. From the statement of Gus M. Bilirakis: "On May 29th, 2014 the VA Office of the Inspector General noted that VA's information technology is still plagued by material weaknesses for the 16th straight year, unacceptable as far as I am concerned. Looking back nearly 18 months Mr. Warren testified to the committee that he had an 18-month plan to resolve the problems in VA's network. However, as GAO's [Government Accountability Office] report released yesterday tells us there are continued problems. Of great concern, VA could not provide supporting material for at least one of the serious problems it claimed to have resolved. The weaknesses in VA's network have contributed to the data manipulations related to the recent wait times scandal. Today we want to discuss these issues." Statements, letters, and other materials submitted for the record include the following: Gus M. Bilirakis, Jeff Miller, Michael Michaud, Stephen Warren, Sondra McCauley, and Greg Wilshusen.
