FILE - In this June 8, 2017, file photo, the campus of the Veterans Administration hospital is under construction in Aurora, Colo. The center is set to open Saturday, July 21, 2018, years behind schedule and more than three times over budget. The Veterans Affairs Department said in 2009 it expected the hospital to cost about $537 million and be completed in 2013. Multiple investigations concluded the costs got out of hand because the VA went for a lavish design, didn’t oversee the project closely enough, failed to get the designers and builders to agree and tried to use a complicated construction contract that agency executives didn’t fully understand.
