The Department of Veterans Affairs’ new Center for Acquisition Innovation and Acquisition Academy is officially open for business.

VA Secretary James Peake was on hand Monday to dedicate the center, located on New Horizon Way in Frederick, and to recognize the first class of 30 interns who will be studying there.

Since 2002, the VA’s purchasing budget has grown from $5 billion to more than $12 billion, but the number of people handling those purchases has remained flat, said Jan Frye, deputy assistant ssecretary for office acquisition and logistics.
