VA clinicians use expendable medical supplies (EMS) -- disposable items that are generally used one time -- and reusable medical equipment (RME), which is designed to be reused for multiple patients. VA has policies that VA medical centers (VAMC) must follow when purchasing such supplies and equipment and tracking these items. This report evaluated VAżs purchasing and tracking of EMS and RME and their potential impact on vetsż safety. This testimony provides observations on: (1) the extent of compliance with VAżs requirements for purchasing and tracking of EMS and RME; and (2) steps VA plan

Industry accounts for about one-third of global energy demand. Most of that energy is used to produce raw materials: chemicals, iron and steel, non-metallic minerals, pulp and paper and non-ferrous metals. Just how efficiently is this energy put to work? 'Tracking Industrial Energy Efficiency and CO2 Emissions' shows how industrial energy efficiency has improved over the last 25 years. Yet important opportunities for additional gains remain, which is evident when the efficiencies of different countries are compared. This analysis identifies the leaders and the laggards. It explains clearly a c

U.S. ports, waterways, and coastal approaches are part of a system handling more than $700 billion in merchandise annually. With the many possible threats -- including transportation and detonation of weapons of mass destruction, suicide attacks against vessels, and others -- in the maritime domain, awareness of such threats could give the Coast Guard (CG) advance notice to help detect, deter, interdict, and defeat them. This report reviews the CGżs efforts to achieve awareness about such activity. It addresses: the extent to which the CG: (1) has vessel tracking systems in place; (2) can use
