Title

CHIP IN for Vets Act of 2016

Official Title

To establish a pilot program on partnership agreements to construct new facilities for the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Summary

This bill authorizes the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to carry out a program under which it may enter into up to five partnership arrangements with a non-federal entity to conduct one or more: super construction projects (those for the construction, alteration, or acquisition of a medical facility involving a total expenditure of more than $100 million); major construction projects (those for the construction, alteration, or acquisition of a medical facility involving a total expenditure of more than $10 million, but not including an acquisition by exchange); or major construction projects to construct a new cemetery or to develop additional gravesites or columbarium niches at an existing cemetery. The selected projects may be ones for which: Congress has appropriated partial funding or the VA has identified a need for the project by listing it on the Major Construction Strategic Capital Investment Planning priority list, and a non-federal entity has entered or is willing to enter into a formal agreement with the VA to independently finance and/or donate acceptable project funds at no additional government cost. One of the non-federal entity partnership agreements shall be a project to design, finance, and construct a new ambulatory care center in Omaha, Nebraska.
