GAO reported a deferral of budget authority in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) major construction appropriation that should have been, but was not, reported to Congress.

GAO found that the VA action to delay awarding a working drawing contract for the third phase of its project constitutes an unauthorized deferral of budget authority, since the delay: (1) is not the result of any unavoidable delay; and (2) does achieve savings.
