2021- TSGAC Letter: 2020 Draft Revised VA-IHS MOU

TSGAC reviewed the draft revised MOU and offers recommendations, including:

  • The addition of workforce development as a metric. The 2010 VA-IHS MOU included joint training and workforce development activities between VA and IHS staff as a measure. These joint training initiatives have been incredibly successful and are an excellent example of a best practice that should be underscored and continued.
  • Add an objective on culturally competent care to ensure Native Veterans receive timely and quality health care.
