The Accountability Act of 2017 has brought changes to the VA.
Not enough but it is a great start.
” Removals, Suspensions 15 days or Greater, and Demotions Effective from January 01, 2018 thru January 24, 2018″
“Removals, Suspensions 14 days or Greater, and Demotions Effective from January 20, 2017 thru December 31, 2017”
My addition shows 1527 removals, 86 demotions, and 451 suspensions over 14 days for employees who have been charged in some way of deficiencies in their employment,from January 1, 2017 to January 24, 2017.
But there was a recent downside to this:
“Phillip Hill, of Benton, Arkansas, formerly worked as a database manager for the agency in Arkansas. He was caught trying to sell personal data in his possession after termination such as data of veterans, their family members, and VA employees.
Hill attempted to sell the information for $10,000 to a law enforcement informant after he was fired from employment December 6, 2017. Despite the termination, Hill indicated he could still access veterans’ personal information remotely. It is believed he was able to do so using either a computer he kept or a server he may have stolen.”
