A senior Veterans Affairs Department official plans to propose a penalty for contracting officers if they don’t file contracting information into VA’s departmentwide database, the official said April 13.

Under a new proposal, contracting officers could be docked on their annual employee performance reviews for failing to enter information into the VA’s Electronic Contract Management System, Glenn Haggstrom, executive director of VA’s Office of Acquisition, Logistics and Construction, told the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee’ Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee.

…Acquisition employees are required to enter contracting data into the records management system, but many times employees have failed, department oversight officials also said during the hearing.
