The Veterans Affairs Department has been making progress on its backlog of disability claims, but outdated technology keeps getting in the way. One bottleneck is the time it takes the VA to receive military medical records from the Defense Department. DoD installed a new system at the beginning of this year to solve that problem. But a look by the inspector general finds that things are as slow as ever. Federal News Radio's DOD Reporter Jared Serbu gives Emily Kopp the details on the Federal Drive.

One major factor behind the Department of Veterans Affairs' disability claims backlog is that it generally takes a long time before the Defense Department sends its medical records to VA when a military member leaves the service. A new IT system DoD installed this year was supposed to solve that problem, but according to a new inspector general's report, things are as slow as ever. Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu tells In Depth with Francis Rose what's going on in this week's edition of Inside the DoD Reporter's Notebook.

The Government Accountability Office lists the Defense Department's supply chain management practices on its high risk list, as it has every year since 1990. GAO says DoD can't say for sure what it already owns, so it can't prove it's buying the right amount of goods. DoD has plans in place to fix that problem, but the Army thinks it has a way to speed things up. Federal News Radio's DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has the details. Read Jared's related article.
