Is there a federal law or policy or case law/s that require the fed gov to be consistent in law from agency to agency? Especially when dealing with the same subject or issue (albeit from a different angle/purpose)? For example, Veterans Affairs, Dept of Ed, and Soc Sec all determine disability of an individual. Is it legal for one agency to make it 20 times harder to be designated "disabled" than the other two agencies? What search terms should I be using? Nothing is popping up... Thanks!

No, there is no such requirement.
