The VA announced that it has successfully deployed a new automated system to improve speed and accuracy in processing Veteran's educational benefits under Post 9/11 GI Bill.
From the VA Press Release:
The technology relies upon information from Veterans and specialized rules-based software to streamline the process for calculating Veterans’ benefits.
“The new GI Bill is the first example of VA’s use of an agile approach to software development,” said Roger W. Baker, VA’s assistant secretary for information and technology. “Our success on this project is already being leveraged to ensure the success of other large software projects within VA.”
This is great news for all Veterans using their education benefits and when the new GI Bill 2.0 rules start this summer, it will provide a great education funding system for our military.
