How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Committee is required to assess the employment and training needs of veterans and their integration into the workforce; determine the extent to which the programs and activities of the Department of Labor are meeting such needs; assist the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Veterans' Employment and Training (ASVET) in carrying out outreach activities to employers with respect to the training and skills of veterans and advantages afforded employers by hiring veterans; make recommendations to the Secretary of Labor, through the ASVET, with respect to outreach activities and the employment and training needs of veterans, and carry out such other activities that are necessary to make required reports and recommendations.
How is membership balanced?*By law, the the Committee is required to have seven representatives from the following organizations: the Society for Human Resource Management, the Business Roundtable, the National Association of State Workforce Agencies, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation of Independent Business, a nationally recognized labor union or organization, and the National Governor's Association. The Secretary of Labor can appoint no more than five individuals from veteran service organizations that have a national employment program, and the Secretary of Labor can also appoint no more than five individuals who are recognized authorities in the fields of business, employment, training, rehabilitation, or labor and who are not employees of the Department of Labor. There are ex-officio members of the Committee composed of representatives of the following federal agencies: the Department of Veterans' Affairs, the Department of Defense, the Office of Personnel Management, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Veterans Employment and Training, the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Employment and Training, and the Small Business Administration.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*By law, the Committee is required to have at least four quarterly meetings. The meetings are focused on receiving non-testimonial information that help guide the members in their roles on subcommittees that are tailored to address specific issues and assess the employment and training needs of Veterans and the extent of programs available at the Department of Labor to meet their needs.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*Congress believes that the Secretary of Labor should receive outside advice regarding issues surrounding veterans employment and training. The advice should come from employers, veteran service organizations, recognized employment authorities and specified stakeholder organizations, as well as key government officials outside of the Department of Labor. The Committee is required to provide the Congressional Committees on Veterans' Affairs with an annual report of its activities and recommendations, to which the Secretary of Labor is given an opportunity to comment. Specifically, the ACVETEO is required to report no later than December 31 of each year on the employment and training needs of veterans for the previous fiscal year, with a special emphasis on disabled veterans.
Why close or partially close meetings?Not Applicable
Recommendation RemarksThe ACVETEO Designated Federal Officer (DFO) changed in FY18. The decrease in personnel payments to Federal Staff in FY18 is due to salary differences between the previous and current DFO.

% of Recs Fully Implemented CommentIn March of 2018, VETS released a policy letter announcing the redesigned Jobs for Veterans State Grant (JVSG) courses delivered at the National Veterans Training Institute (NVTI) to ensure there is a proper understanding of services to veterans with disabilities. VETS will continually monitor and refresh curriculum on a standard schedule and identify new courses that meet the employment needs of veterans. VETS designed a portal on the NVTI.org website to give current and former students the ability to form communities around topics of mutual interests. This collaborative workspace allows participants to interact with DOL VETS staff as well. VETS now collects information and best practices on its grant programs through both formal reporting and informal technical assistance. Once identified, VETS shares successful best practices on a collaborative workspace through the National Veterans Training Institute's (NVTI) webpage (www.nvti.org). The NVTI Student Portal is a web-based service designed to provide JVSG staff in the AJCs with access to a number of resources. It is currently operational and it will evolve as users are added and interact with one another and the resources available. In FY18 VETS completed and engaged with more than 40 employers, VSOs, and technical experts in a comprehensive curriculum review of DOL's Employment Workshop and Career Credentialing and Apprenticeship Track (CCAT) technical review.

VETS is working with DOL's Women’s Bureau to develop Transition Assistance Program (TAP) curriculum specific to military spouses. VETS is focusing on employer outreach efforts to support the President's Executive Order on Expanding Apprenticeships to both veterans and military spouses. VETS continues to improve employment resources available at VETERANS.GOV to ensure the content meets the needs of transitioning service members, veterans, military spouses, employers, and stakeholders. VETS is reviewing current SBEs and program outcomes as well as the capacity of JVSG – funded staff to serve additional veterans at current funding levels. VETS has recently updated its web content for women veterans on www.dol.gov/vets and on www.veterans.gov. Information for veterans with disabilities is available on www.dol.gov/vets and VETS is leveraging DOL's Office of Disability Employment Program's resources, including its Job Accommodation Network (JAN) and the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN). JAN is the leading source of free, expert, and confidential guidance on workplace accommodations and disability employment issues for all Americans,
including veterans. EARN helps employers recruit, hire, retain and advance people with disabilities. VETS will consider opportunities to make additional information available for Native American veterans.
