Summary

VA Transparency & Trust Act of 2021

This bill requires the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to submit a plan for obligating and expending covered funds, which are funds made available to the VA for response to the COVID-19 (i.e., coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic.

The bill requires the VA to submit biweekly reports regarding obligations, expenditures, and planned uses of the funds until seven days after the VA has expended all covered funds.

The Inspector General of the VA must submit reports examining the obligations and expenditures made using covered funds during the specified reporting period.

Finally, the Government Accountability Office must submit an interim report and final report containing a review of obligations and expenditures made using covered funds.
