Develop electronic contracting templates for similar actions to expedite contract awards. A format like MasterFormat (used in construction) could be used, with appropriate divisions and sections.
Create a national VHA SharePoint for CPRS templates, and allow any CPRS user to post and download templates. To make templates easier to find on the SharePoint site, group templates of each type.
Standardize CPRS template fields and CPRS template patient data objects, so templates written at one VHA will work at other VHAs without editing all the template fields and template patient data objects.
This will save template development time.
