Veteran-Owned Small Businesses are encouraged to attend this session to learn about the process of reporting fraud against the Department.
The Investigative Development Division (IDD) is focused on procurement and construction fraud against the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). In addition to investigating cases involving procurement and construction fraud against the Department IDD investigates waste and abuse, threats against VA personnel and property, and benefits fraud. IDD has made criminal arrests and effected monetary recovery from procurement and construction fraud cases. This information session intends to educate the audience about IDD, clarify classifications and definitions of fraud, and provide contact information to report suspected fraud. Participants are reminded the reporting of suspected fraud within the department must be sent directly to the VA OIG, and not the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utililization.
At the end of the presentation, participants can ask questions which the host will attempt to answer. Participants shall resist mentioning the name of a specific company or individual suspected as committing fraud during the question and answer period, as doing so is premature before a case is initiated (when appropriate) and exploratory completed.
