In an effort to continue to serving Hoosier veterans in the most effective manner possible, the IDVA recently underwent a third-party review of current operations. The findings and recommendations of the third-party are their own.  While the IDVA is not obligated by any items within the report, the agency will give consideration to these recommendations in mapping future operations. Findings and recommendations of the third-party may be found here
