ABSTRACT

VA Real Property: Enhanced Communication and Performance Measurement Could Improve Capital Asset Management, Report to the Committee on Veterans' Affairs, U.S. Senate   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Highlights: "In providing healthcare to over 9 million enrolled veterans, VA [Department of Veterans Affairs] manages a portfolio that includes 5,625 owned and 1,690 leased buildings as of fiscal year 2020. VA has pressing needs associated with these assets, not only maintaining or replacing aging facilities but also adapting to changes in veterans' demographics and needs. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to review VA's management of these real property (capital) assets. This report examines: (1) VA's management of its staffing resources for constructing and maintaining its capital assets, (2) VA's communication among offices involved in and supporting capital asset management, and (3) VA's assessment of its performance in capital asset management."
