VA awards $9.6 million modernization study to PricewaterhouseCoopers

The Veterans Affairs Department awarded a $9.6 million contract to PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP of New York to complete studies for the Capital Asset and Realignment for Enhanced Services plan, VA's blueprint for the future. CARES is designed to provide greater access to health care closer to where most veterans live.

'With this contract, we will ensure the historic modernization of our health care system includes input from our veterans and other stakeholders,' VA secretary Anthony Principi said today.

PricewaterhouseCoopers will conduct studies at 18 sites throughout the country during a 13-month period, to be completed by February 2006. VA's undersecretary for health and the CARES Implementation Board, consisting of senior VA officials, will review the studies and make recommendations.
