Sec. 8201. Coordination with public health programs; administration

-STATUTE-

(a) The Secretary and the Secretary of Health and Human Services

shall, to the maximum extent practicable, coordinate the programs

carried out under this chapter and the programs carried out under

titles VII, VIII, and IX of the Public Health Service Act (42

U.S.C. 292 et seq.).

(b) The Secretary may not enter into any agreement under

subchapter I of this chapter after September 30, 1979.

(c) The Secretary, after consultation with the special medical

advisory committee established pursuant to section 7312(a) of this

title, shall prescribe regulations covering the terms and

conditions for entering into agreements and making grants under

this chapter.

(d) Payments made pursuant to grants under this chapter may be

made in installments, and either in advance or by way of

reimbursement, with necessary adjustments on account of

overpayments or underpayments, as the Secretary may determine.

(e) In carrying out the purposes of this chapter, the Secretary

may lease to any eligible institution for such consideration and

under such terms and conditions as the Secretary deems appropriate,

such land, buildings, and structures (including equipment therein)

under the control and jurisdiction of the Department as may be

necessary. The three-year limitation on the term of a lease

prescribed in section 8122(a) of this title shall not apply with

respect to any lease entered into pursuant to this chapter, but no

such lease may be for a period of more than 50 years. Any lease

entered into pursuant to this chapter may be entered into without

regard to the provisions of section 3709 of the Revised Statutes

(41 U.S.C. 5). Notwithstanding section 1302 of title 40, or any

other provision of law, a lease entered into pursuant to this

chapter may provide for the maintenance, protection, or

restoration, by the lessee, of the property leased, as a part or

all of the consideration of the lease.

(f) In making grants under this chapter, the Secretary shall give

special consideration to applications from institutions which

provide reasonable assurances, which shall be included in the grant

agreement, that priority for admission to health manpower and

training programs carried out by such institutions will be given to

otherwise qualified veterans who during their military service

acquired medical military occupation specialties, and that among

such qualified veterans those who served during the Vietnam era and

those who are entitled to disability compensation under laws

administered by the Secretary or whose discharge or release was for

a disability incurred or aggravated in line of duty will be given

the highest priority. In carrying out this chapter and section 7302

of this title in connection with health manpower and training

programs assisted or conducted under this title or in affiliation

with a Department medical facility, the Secretary shall take

appropriate steps to encourage the institutions involved to afford

the priorities described in the first sentence of this subsection

and to advise all qualified veterans with such medical military

occupation specialties of the steps the Secretary has taken under

this subsection and the opportunities available to them as a result

of such steps.

(g)(1) Each recipient of assistance under this chapter shall keep

such records as the Secretary shall prescribe, including records

which fully disclose the amount and disposition by such recipient

of the proceeds of such assistance, the total cost of the project

or undertaking in connection with which such assistance is made or

used, the amount of that portion of the cost of the project or

undertaking supplied by other sources, and such records as will

facilitate an effective audit.

(2) The Secretary and the Comptroller General of the United

States, or any of their duly authorized representatives, shall have

access for the purpose of audit and examination to any books,

documents, papers, and records of the recipient of any assistance

under this chapter which are pertinent to such assistance.
