Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed an independent report on the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) Home Loan Guaranty Program, focusing on whether the: (1) report's recommendations were supported by sufficient evidence; and (2) report contained factual errors or analytical weaknesses. GAO found that: (1) the report did not adequately support 6 of the 7 recommendations with sufficient evidence; (2) the report failed to sufficiently identify a supportable problem with the home loan program, explain the proposed problem's impact on the program, and show how the recommendation would redress the proposed problem; (3) without further explanation and supporting evidence, VA could not consider corrective action; (4) the report could be misleading due to inaccuracies and a questionable analytical methodology; and (5) VA fully implemented one of the report's recommendations and partially implemented two others.
