VETS Reporting & Filing

The U.S. Department of Labor Veterans' Employment and Training service (VETS) and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) have supported affirmative action to employ and advance in employment, "covered veterans" since 2008. As legislatively mandated under 38 U.S. Code, Section 4212, codified at 41 CFR Section 61-300, contractors and subcontractors who enter into, or modify a contract or subcontract with the federal government, and whose contract meets the criteria set forth in the above legislation/regulations, are required to report annually on their affirmative action efforts in employing veterans. VETS has a legislative requirement to collect, and make available to OFCCP, reported data contained on a new reporting form in 2015, the VETS-4212 report, for compliance enforcement. The VETS reporting cycle begins annually on August 1 and ends September 30, each year.

Who Must File the VETS-4212 Report?

The VETS-4212 Report is to be completed by each federal contractor and subcontractor with a contract or subcontract entered into or modified on or after December 1, 2003 in the amount of $100,000 or more with any department or agency of the United States for the procurement of personal property and non-personal services (including construction). Entering into a covered federal contract or subcontract during a given calendar year established the requirement to file a VETS-4212 Report during the following calendar year.
