Alternative Dispute Resolution

This site provides information on the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) programs operating within the Department of Veterans Affairs; Workplace, Procurement, and Environmental.

 

Welcome to the VA ADR Home Page. This site provides information on the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) programs operating within the Department of Veterans Affairs; Workplace, Procurement, and Environmental.

Consistent with the Administrative Dispute Resolution Act of 1996 and as stated in VA’s ADR Policy, VA Directive 5978, VA supports ADR to the maximum extent practicable and at the earliest possible stage to prevent, minimize, and resolve disputes between or among the Department and its employees and other parties. ADR helps to achieve mutually acceptable and cost-effective outcomes and to accomplish business efficiently, economically, and productively. We hope that you find the information posted on our ADR programs useful. We welcome your questions/comments as well.
