Facilities Staffing Requirements for the Veterans Health Administrationaresource Planning and Methodology for the Future: Interim Report
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine was tasked by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) to prepare a comprehensive resource planning and staffing methodology guidebook for VHA Facility Management (Engineering) Programs.
The resource and staffing methodology must take into account all significant parameters and variables involved in the VHA Engineering Programs.
The methodology should yield customized outputs based on site-specific input data, to enable specification of the optimal budget and staffing levels for each site.Currently, the VHA does not utilize a staffing model for defining its facilities workforce.
Each medical center defines its required facilities staffing.
This interim report focuses on the types, availability, usage, and limitations of models in the staffing processes.
