Homeless Veterans: VA Should Improve Reporting on the Benefits Provided by Leases of Unneeded Property, Report to Congressional Committees [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Highlights: "Federal real property is on GAO [Government Accountability Office]'s high risk list partly because some agencies, like VA [Department of Veterans Affairs], have large amounts of underutilized or vacant space. In an effort to develop some of these unneeded properties, VA has worked with private partners to convert its unneeded space into supportive housing for veterans and other purposes using EULs [enhanced use leases]. Congress included a provision in statute for GAO to review VA's EUL program. This report examines: 1) VA's authorities for managing unneeded property and providing homeless veteran housing; 2) VA's internal control design for monitoring EULs and collecting accurate data; and 3) VA's estimates of the financial effect of EULs."
