VA Procurement Efficiency and Transparency Act

This bill addresses procurement procedures in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Specifically, the bill requires the VA to record the amount of any cost savings realized by using competitive procedures in awarding contracts reported in the Federal Procurement Data System (or successor systems).

The VA shall make available and use on a VA-wide basis the standardized procurement templates already used internally at certain VA offices.
