As part of its Capital Asset Management Service (CAMS) Program, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is seeking to more effectively assess and manage its real property assets. Many of VA’s medical campuses have underutilized property that may be converted to cash or in-kind services under its Enhanced-Use Lease (EUL) authority, allowing VA to build needed facilities to continue to deliver the highest quality of healthcare. VA Office of Asset Enterprise Management performed a comprehensive and systematic review of each of is real property assets and the Tomah VA Medical Center (VAMC) was one of the sites selected by the Site Review Board for a site visit based on the results of a Phase I, initial Site Review Evaluation.
The Tomah VAMC is located on a 173-acre campus. Tomah VAMC is a 271-bed facility focusing on primary care, mental health services and nursing home care. Along with the four community based outpatient clinics (CBOCs), the facility serves veterans in mid-western Wisconsin and the bordering counties in Iowa, Minnesota, and Michigan.
VA seeks to competitively select a private developer to lease approximately 2.85 acres of land located on campus. The successful private EUL bidder(s) will provide VA with in-kind consideration that includes the development and operation of new supportive housing units with on-site supportive services for individuals and/or families. Such units and services will be provided to Veterans, who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness, on a priority basis.
