Federal investigators Wednesday accused those at a Denver, Colo.-based Veterans Affairs office of improperly overseeing construction of a VA hospital that ran over budget by millions of dollars.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has the details:

The inspector general accused the VA of “gross mismanagement” for assigning far too few engineers and project managers.

[Sloan Gibson, deputy secretary of Veterans Affairs] said the department has taken responsibility for the problems and has made changes.

Two weeks ago, [Fla. Republican Jeff] Miller’s committee subpoenaed documents on a separate internal VA investigation into the cost overruns. The department has not said whether it will comply or fight the subpoena.
