The Feedback Tool process for VA’s complaint system data elements include: Æ Institution/Employer: There are over 36,000 educational institutions that are approved for VA education benefits.

Æ Required fields: As a result of allowing anonymous complaints, many of the fields will not be required by VA. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
