Abstract:

This is a testimony given on March 13, 2002, given before the Subcommittee on the Department of Veterans Affairs VA continuing actions to address critical weaknesses in its overall information technology IT program. In brief, we noted that VA had made important progress in raising corporate awareness of the departments IT needs and in taking actions to improve key areas of IT performance. Nevertheless, the department has significant work to accomplish in order to use IT investments to improve mission performance. This report officially transmits recommendations that we are making to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs based on our work presented in our testimony.
