ABSTRACT

Review of VHA's Financial Oversight of COVID-19 Supplemental Funds   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Executive Summary: "[T]he VA [Department of Veterans Affairs] Office of Inspector General (OIG) initiated this review to report on efforts by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) to establish financial oversight mechanisms for tracking and reporting COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] supplemental funding. This review focused on VHA because it received most of the supplemental funding. Of the $19.57 billion in CARES [Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security] Act funding provided to VA, VHA received approximately $17.24 billion for medical care supplemental funds, as well as $60 million from the FFCRA [Families First Coronavirus Response Act], for a total of approximately $17.3 billion. The OIG team reviewed VHA's efforts to establish financial oversight for tracking and reporting on COVID-19 supplemental funding. The team did not assess the effectiveness of VA's or VHA's internal controls for individual obligations and expenditures, nor the reasonableness of each one."
