VAIRRS Enterprise Partnership Award (VEPA)
New this year, VAIRRS has established the VAIRRS Enterprise Partnership Award (VEPA) to recognize VA research programs that meet and exceed requirements and have fully transitioned to VAIRRS to meet enterprise standards put in place by the Office of Research and Development (ORD). The VEPA recognizes VA research programs by size (small, medium and large) and annually awards three programs based on their completion metrics and positive contributions that has enabled the expansion of VAIRRS' and ORD's mission and priorities.
This year's award winners were selected due to their exceptional performance in meeting and exceeding expectations for VAIRRS and ORD, which enables leadership to expand efforts for improvement within the VA research community and for our Veterans. ORD leadership is grateful for each program's contributions and continued excellence.
Please join us in congratulating our 2023 winners!
