Hearing on VA Recruitment and Retention Authorities

National VFW - 3/28/2017

On Wednesday, the House Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Health held a hearing to discuss ways to improve VA’s ability to recruit and retain high quality health care professionals. The members of the subcommittee explored ways to expedite the hiring process to ensure candidates aren’t required to wait months to be hired by VA. VFW National Legislative Service Director Carlos Fuentes submitted testimony urging Congress to give VA direct hiring authority for frontline staff, who currently wait up to six months for an entry level job. VA testified on its challenges with human resources staff and agreed that having more direct hire authority for health care staff would improve its ability to deliver timely and high quality care to veterans. Read the testimony.
