GAO Report Says VA Is a ‘High-Risk’ Budget Issue
The Government Accountability Office has labeled Veterans Affairs a "high-risk" budget issue, adding the department to a list of federal programs that are particularly vulnerable to "fraud, waste, abuse and mismanagement," according to a report released Wednesday. In the report, GAO wrote that VA has failed to completely address more than 100 GAO recommendations. Some of the recommendations are more than 10 years old, according to the report.
