The Department of Treasury says they have opened an investigation into accusations that one of their current employees inappropriately awarded a lucrative government contract to a company she had personal ties with, while working for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provided lawmakers with misleading and inaccurate information when they first detailed the number of veterans who were harmed by long wait times, according to a new report by the Office of Inspector General.
The VA released a “fact sheet” in April 2014 that summarized an internal, system-wide review of unresolved consults or additional requests for services that remained “open or active” after 90 days.
