A former (retired) VA Senior Official and a VA contractor employee knowingly misrepresented the results of the June 2012 Detroit, MI, VA for Vets Veterans Hiring Fair. Further, the former VA Senior Official did not properly manage the VA workforce, frequently used obscene and demeaning language, engaged in verbally abusive behavior toward VA staff and VA contractor employees, and engaged in the appearance of a conflict of interest. In addition, a contractor received over $500,000 for a data management system that was not designed to capture accurate data to support VA’s needs.
