National Cemetery Administration (NCA), Veterans Cemetery Grants Program (VCGP), Compliance Review Program (CRP) Support

October 31, 2017 Uncategorized 0 Comment

Sehlke Consulting, LLC has been awarded their first prime contract with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide on-site compliance support of the Veterans Cemetery Grants Program (VCGP) for the National Cemetery Administration (NCA). Our team of reviewers will assess 15 State, territories, and federally recognized tribal cemeteries throughout the US in fiscal year 2018. During these visits, our team will lead in the Compliance Review Program (CRP), which documents, tracks, monitors, and reports on a sites’ progress towards maintaining key cemetery operational areas such as: interments, grounds maintenance, headstone/marker operations, equipment maintenance, facility maintenance, and safety.

The CRP aims to apply established performance metrics to grant-funded cemeteries in order to more effectively track compliance with NCA operational standards in accordance with grant agreements which provide funding for establishment, expansion and improvement. The CRP directly contributes to improved accountability of sites by providing cemetery staff with a “Scorecard” to gauge performance and grant compliance. The comprehensive compliance scoring methodology allows grant-funded cemeteries to be reviewed more objectively, become more aware of their performance, and to identify opportunities for improvement.

The mission of the NCA is to honor Veterans and their families with their final resting place. NCA is committed to ensuring all VA grant-funded Veterans cemeteries are maintained as national shrines dedicated to preserving our nation’s history, and honoring the service and sacrifice our veterans have made.
