VA must report annually to Congress on its capacity in five areas: (1) spinal cord injury and disorder, (2) traumatic brain injury, (3) blind rehabilitation, (4) prosthetics and sensory aids, and (5) mental health. This reporting requirement was established to ensure that VA’s capacity to serve disabled veterans does not fall below 1996 levels. The OIG is required to report to Congress on the accuracy of VA’s report.
