The Technical Information Library (TIL) is The Source for VA's electronic Design and Construction Information. The TIL contains nearly 2,500 documents covering all aspects of VA facility development, from planning through construction to occupancy. The TIL document collection represents the institutional knowledge resulting from the more than 50 continuous years of the VA construction program.
The Office of Construction and Facilities Management is responsible for VA construction projects that exceed $10 million in construction costs. Included here are construction solicitation documents and wage rate determinations.
