|VA Office:||Veterans Health Administration (VHA)
|Report Author:||Office of Special Reviews
|Report Type:||Administrative Investigation
The VA Office of Inspector General (OIG) investigated allegations that the chief of staff at a VA medical center engaged in a conflict of interest by performing work for a private company that provides education services and misused his official position by recruiting VA physicians to work for that same company in 2017 and 2018. The OIG did not substantiate either alleged violation. The OIG did, however, identify a related misuse of government resources.
