In a recent press conference, Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki announced that VA will begin using a new computer system in 2012.  Though the plans are in place, VA is still working out the details and is not clear about when the effects of the new computer system will be felt.  Secretary Shinseki hopes that the new computer system will not only speed along the claims process, but will also attract Veterans, skeptical of the VA. Implementing the new computer system is just one example of VA’s attempts to modernize its technology and processes in order to instill confidence and satisfaction in old and new Veterans.

    Yea right , I filed for an increase for comp in March of 2010, 23 months later and still no movement. The Va has it’s head up it’s Ass . They lie to the public and have been claiming to resolve the backlog since 2005 . Meanwhile with 3 wars they act like they didn’t expect so many troops to make it back. Why didn’t they hire more Raters earlier? They only had 10 years and a multi billion dollar budget this entire time.
