|Title:||Staff Did Not Limit the Use of Schools and Training Programs That Were Only Approved for the Veteran Readiness and Employment Program|
|VA Office:||Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA)
|Report Author:||Office of Audits and Evaluations
The VA Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted this audit to determine whether the Veterans Benefits Administration’s Veteran Readiness and Employment Service (VR&E) properly approved and monitored participants’ use of Chapter 31–only programs, which assist veterans who have service-connected disabilities that limit employment opportunities. By law, these programs may only be used when approved GI Bill programs are insufficient to meet a veteran’s unique training needs.
