VA Construction: Strengthened Pilot Design and a Dedicated Team Could Improve Real-Property Donation Pilot Program
A 2016 law allows a VA pilot program to accept donations for facility construction or improvements. In Omaha, Nebraska, one donor group - in consultation with the VA - is building an ambulatory care center. The VA and the donor group said this project is proceeding faster and at a lower cost than a typical VA project. However, VA officials said it is hard to find partners to make large donations. GAO is recommending that VA: (1) establish pilot program objectives, (2) develop an assessment methodology and an evaluation plan, and (3) document roles and responsibilities and identify available and needed staff resources. VA concurred with GAO's recommendations.
