Another corrupt government project

Army core of engineers will oversee the construction of the VA Hospitals

It only took (3) years for this one.

We must get politicians fingers out of any government project and run them as if they were a private company, you never see a private company putting up with this greed and corruption.

Some constructions are 3 years behind schedule and hundreds of millions of dollars over budget.

The House has passed a bill to increase oversight of veterans’ hospitals under construction, following a report that some medical centers take three years longer to complete than estimated and cost an extra $366 million per project.

Republican congressman Mike Coffman of Colorado says the Veterans Affairs Department’s oversight of construction projects is dysfunctional and leads to delayed health care.

A report by the Government Accountability Office last year found that at least four medical centers were behind schedule and hundreds of millions of dollars over budget.

The hospitals are in Las Vegas, Denver, New Orleans and Orlando, Fla.

The House bill would require the VA to appoint a project manager from the Army Corps of Engineers to oversee construction projects that cost more than $60 million.
