DOL/ASVET RIN: 1293-AA19 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Compliance With the VOW to Hire Heroes Act on the Requirements of DVOPs and LVERs 

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 (DVOP) specialists and Local Veterans Employment Representative (LVER) staff. Further, the Act allows the Secretary to reduce funding to a State based on audit findings of non-compliance. In implementing the VOW Act, the Veterans' Employment and Training Service intended to undertake a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to promulgate the standards that would be used in making compliance determinations.  This item is being withdrawn because VETS currently audits states to ensure compliance with mandated duties of DVOPs and LVERs.  VETS also has other tools to address state compliance and performance issues associated with DVOPs and LVERs, including provisions in 2 CFR 200.
