MITRE Corp. will work with the Department of Veterans Affairs to assess healthcare processes throughout the VA under a contract with undisclosed terms.

The nonprofit research and development organization will serve as program integrator and coordinate the results of third-party assessments under the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014, the VA said Thursday.

Bob McDonald, veterans affairs secretary, said the independent assessment “will provide the department a way to transparently review our vital programs, organizations, and business practices to make us a better and more accountable VA for the veterans we serve.“

“This independent assessment is a key element in our effort to rebuild trust with veterans and our other stakeholders,“ he added.

MITRE will report the assessment results to Congress within 60 days after work is completed.
