The Secretary of Veterans Affairs notes that there is a good reason under 5 U.S. states. C 553 (b) (B) and (d) (3) waive the possibility of prior notice and the opportunity to make public submissions and publish this rule with immediate entry into force. As noted in this provision, the contract network of VA community suppliers, as added to Section 1703 (h) pursuant to Section 101 of the MISSION Act, will not be fully operational until June 6, 2019. In addition, Section 143 of THE MISSION amended Section 101 (p) of the Choice Act to reaffirm that VA can no longer use the Choice Act for procurement and services after June 6, 2019. As a result, VA can no longer use vendor agreements for the Veterans` Choice Program at this point. If these provisions do not apply until June 6, 2019 for Veterans Care Agreements (VCAs), VA cannot use these agreements to replace Choice supplier agreements. If VCAs cannot use to replace the agreements of program providers of choice, VA will not be able to: (1) fill gaps in coverage for the provision of general care and services until the contractual network of municipal providers is fully established, and (2) provide some specific care and services that VA does not expect to be guaranteed , at least in the near future, through the contractual network of municipal suppliers. (E) Knowing that, up to three years after the final payment of a government contract (or a veterans` maintenance contract with the company or supplier), a client has not communicated to the government, in a timely manner, with respect to the awarding or agreement, execution or conclusion of a contract or contract or subcontract – to present disputes arising from agreements arising from agreements arising from agreements. , according to 38 U.S.C 1703A (h) (1). In point (a) of point 17.4135, the parameters of these administrative procedures are generally defined, which are consistent with Section 1703A (h) (2) (h) (4).
Paragraph (a) (1) specifically states that a dispute within the meaning of Section 17.4135 involves a disagreement between THE VA and the company or supplier that has entered into a Veteran Care Agreement with LA VA, which meets the following criteria: (i) Pertains on one of the themes mentioned on page 17.4135, point b) (limited to payment or authorization rights , as explained below); (ii) not resolved informally by mutual agreement between the parties; and (iii) in one of the parties seeking or claiming payment of money under a specified amount under the Veterans Care Contract, interpretation of the terms of the Veterans Care Agreement, or specific authorization under the Veterans Care Agreement or any other relief arising from or related to the Veterans Care Contract.
