VA/DOD Federal Health Care Center: Costly Information Technology Delays Continue and Evaluation Plan Lacking
GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
VA and DOD have a long-standing history of sharing health care resources to provide services to their beneficiaries. However, the FHCC is unique among VA and DOD collaborations to deliver health care services in several ways, notably its level of integration, the way it is funded, and its governance structure. The Executive Agreement, signed by the Secretaries of both departments, contains provisions to be met in 12 integration areas regarding specific aspects of FHCC operations, including establishing a governance structure and combining VA and DOD staff into a single, joint workforce. The FHCC s leadership remains directly accountable to VA and DOD individually, through formal reporting relationships, and jointly, through oversight and advisory entities comprising VA and DOD officials.
