Brief Executive Summary
The Senate Subcommittee on Federal Spending Oversight under Senator Rand Paul issued a weekly waste report that looks into the waste of medical equipment in the Arizona VA healthcare administration. The report looks into the waste of equipment totaling over $200,000 from inadequate oversight. The subcommittee finds that, although there was an abrupt retirement, this VA did not properly oversee the onboarding of equipment which resulted in a waste of taxpayer money and treatment available to veterans.
