VETERANS AFFAIRS

Contractors to begin advising VA Department with scheduling

The Veterans Affairs Department will soon be hearing advice from a technology task force consisting of government contractors, according to FCW.com.

The provision was included as part of the veterans’ health care overhaul, which increased funding to the department and streamlined the process for firing senior executives, FCW reported.

Requested by Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) in June, the private sector pro bono task force put together by the Northern Virginia Technology Council will include Booz Allen Hamilton, HP, IBM, MITRE Corp. and SAIC. Ultimately, it will be up to the VA whether the department will heed the advice, FCW reported.
