This report examines how SAA oversight of schools receiving the GI Bill has been weakened over time by VA’s increased tasking of SAAs with payment accuracy to the detriment of substantive reviews of school quality.  The report explores the recent history of statutory and regulatory changes and their implications, in particular how these changes have contributed to the tension between VA and SAAs over their roles and responsibilities.
