United States. Department of Veterans Affairs. Office of Inspector General
From the Executive Summary: "The VA [Department of Veterans Affairs] Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted this review to determine whether Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) staff 1. implemented VA guidance for documenting the date of receipt for benefits-related correspondence during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] national state of emergency, as the date of receipt may establish when benefit entitlements begin; and 2. continued to process mail received at VA facilities during the same period to ensure benefit claims were still being processed."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
