Another case of a retiree from another agency stepping into a job they know NOTHING about and than must spend the next few years learning about the system they are supposed to manage. Why does the VA continue to look outside their own system for people who do not know how the system works? Hire experienced people from within and than hold their feet to the fire until the job is done correctly. If you hired someone who is depending on this job for their retirement, I bet they would be more effective than hiring someone who is already retired and just seeking a second payroll check. When things get too hot, if that every really happens, all they have to do is resign and walk away. They still keep their retirement check.

Yes, this is wrong but not enough evidence to 'convict' so that is how he gets away with this. Upper management covers their own tracks and they know how.
'Hire experienced people from within and than hold their feet to the fire until the job is done correctly.' Now here you have a point!!! A really good point if only you could get someone to listen to you. That is how they system is 'supposed' to work
