Brentwood School Violates Law being on West LA VA, Soldiers’ Home.

Imagine trying to justify a $50,000 a year private school in our Nation’s Capital of Veteran Homelessness to be on 900+ acres of land federally deed restricted to be nothing but a permanent HOME for homeless and disabled Veterans.

“Brentwood School. A lease allowed the Brentwood School continued use of its
athletic facilities located on 21 acres of the West Los Angeles campus. VA
reviewed this land-use agreement following the settlement of Valentini v. Shinseki
to determine whether it could be made sufficiently veteran focused.26 In
November 2016, VA decided to continue its long-term relationship with the
Brentwood School by executing a 10-year lease. Under this lease, the Brentwood
School was to pay $850,000 in annual rent and provide nonmonetary, in-kind
consideration valued at $918,000.27 The OIG determined the Brentwood School
lease violated the West Los Angeles Leasing Act because the purpose was not to
principally benefit veterans and their families; rather, the principal purpose of this
lease was to provide the Brentwood School continued use of the athletic facilities.
The OIG also found that VA’s acceptance of nonmonetary, in-kind consideration is
not authorized under the law, which requires VA to accept only monetary
consideration for the leasing of buildings or property of the federal government.28
Legally, nonprofit organizations like the Brentwood School can provide in-kind
consideration related to the maintenance, protection, and restoration of leased
property.29 However, the in-kind consideration the Brentwood School provided
included more than allowable maintenance of landscaping or physical structures
installed by the school. Other in-kind consideration costs such as additional staffing
and veteran special events are not allowed under federal law.” from OIG stating Brentwood School is Illegal in 2021: https://www.oversight.gov/sites/default/files/oig-reports/VA/VAOIG-20-03407-253.pdf
