VA Acquisition Management: Comprehensive Supply Chain Management Strategy Key to Address Existing Challenges
The VA faced unexpected challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic, exposing problems in its supply chain management. In response, it took steps such as establishing central storage facilities for critical medical supplies. The VA has several linked initiatives to update its supply chain. We testified that successful preparation for future health emergencies relies on a comprehensive supply chain management strategy. We recommended the VA update its strategy to ensure it is comprehensive and includes all ongoing efforts. Addressing supply chain challenges will help the VA improve acquisition management, which we added to our High Risk List in 2019.
