CVA Statement on New OIG Report Exposing Lack of VA Accountability in Colorado
Denver, CO — The Office of Inspector General (OIG) released a new report exposing that the Director of the VA’s Denver Regional Benefits Office (VARO) has been habitually arriving late to work on over 70 percent of her workdays and has missed as many as 14 days without explanation over a four-year period.
CVA Colorado State Director Frank Crocker issued the following statement:
“The VA’s failure to hold top officials in Denver accountable is not an isolated incident, but a prime example of the systemic lack of accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Unfortunately, right now it’s nearly impossible to fire bad VA employees who don’t show up to work. The VA must break this toxic cycle and begin to set a new standard for accountability by passing solid reforms already on the table, such as the VA Accountability Act.”
