VAVHA Unfulfilled Requirements

On December 19, 2016, VHA issued a policy entitled Sharing VHA Software Requirements with the Open Source Community.  Under this policy, VHA will share unfulfilled software requirements with the open source community as a means of stimulating discussion and collaboration.  The OSEHRA website has been designated as the dissemination point for these requirements.

Most of these requirements link to elements of the VA Business Function Framework (BFF).  Since our ViViaN™ tool already had an interactive BFF display, we enhanced it to create a VHA BFF and Requirements Tab.  In addition, the requirements can be accessed in tabular format and are keyword searchable. 

Because it is imperative that this data be freely available, all of the requirements will be accessible through ViViaN even if you have not logged onto our website.  However, to ensure that you are notified of our latest blog posts, we encourage you to join us as a member of OSEHRA.  Associate Membership is free for all individuals. If you are not yet a member, please sign up here today.

The information displayed on VHA unfulfilled requirements is provided to the open source community by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Health Administration (VHA) for information only.  It is not a solicitation for any work effort or proposals.  If you have questions or comments on the information provided, please email them to
