VA IG fails finance system

The Veterans Affairs Department should stop work on its troubled new financial management system until the agency decides whether CoreFLS can be salvaged, a report from VA's Office of the Inspector General said.

The report criticized VA for inadequate oversight of the $472 million contract, of which VA to date has committed $249 million.

VA noncompetitively awarded BearingPoint Inc., McLean, Va., 22 task orders, accepting them without independent evaluation of need, an action the inspector general called "tantamount to issuing BearingPoint a blank check."

Transfer of inaccurate data from VA's legacy systems to CoreFLS has interrupted patient care and medical center operations, a problem the report said "may be a systemic problem throughout the Veterans Health Administration."
