The General Services Administration (GSA) advised the Veterans Administration (VA) that substantial cost savings could be realized if GSA assumed responsibility for storing and servicing the records now at the VA Records Processing Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

Recommendation for Executive Action

  1. Status: Closed

    Comments: Please call 202/512-6100 for additional information.

    Recommendation: VA subsequently determined that its records processing center is an integral part of its agency operation and is not a records center. Since GAO considers the St. Louis facility to be a records center, VA requires GSA approval to store and maintain its records. GSA should evaluate the VA study and determine whether VA should be granted approval to continue to operate the center and should instruct the Public Buildings Service to delay any further action on modifications or repairs which would be unique to the VA records center.
