Title: Cost-benefit study of culling claim folders at the Department of Veterans Affairs

Abstract

Culling is the process of sorting through material to separate significant from insignificant information. Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) conducted a study on culling Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) claim folders for two reasons. The first was to help the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) learn about culling strategies that could be applied to veterans' claim folders located at the VA's regional offices (ROs) throughout the United States. The second was to show the VA the benefits that could be derived from culling. 24 tabs.
