Partnerships

Partnerships strengthen our work by allowing us to explore new perspectives, approaches, tools, and other resources that are central to problem-solving. Partnerships provide incentives that may help speed the commercialization of federally developed technology.

VACI is committed to partnering with creative, innovative, smart, and disruptive organizations to ensure the most meaningful and effective services are available for our Veterans. These partnerships are living relationships, ever evolving to directly support VA objectives (e.g., eliminating homelessness, resolving the claims backlog, and improving mental health services) and to ensure sustainable innovation at VA.
