DOL/ASVET RIN: 1293-AA19 Publication ID: Fall 2014 
Title: Compliance With the VOW to Hire Heroes Act on the Requirements of DVOPs and LVERs 
Abstract: Section 241 of the Veterans Opportunity to Work (VOW) to Hire Heroes Act of 2011 ("VOW Act," title II of Pub. L. 112-56) requires the Secretary to conduct audits to ensure compliance with the mandated duties of Disabled Veterans Outreach Program and Local Veterans Employment Representatives. Further, the Act allows the Secretary to reduce funding to a State based on audit findings of non-compliance. In order to fully implement the VOW Act, Veterans Employment and Training Services will undertake a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to promulgate the standards that will be used in making compliance determinations. The NPRM will establish clear, enforceable standards for making determinations on funding reductions.
