OPM has told agencies to report by December 1 on their results and future plans under the Disabled Veterans Affirmative Action Program, which requires agencies to promote recruitment, employment and advancement of disabled veterans.

“The recent analysis of DVAAP accomplishment reports show positive results, reflecting connectivity between programs areas, approaches, and commitment to enhancing agency programs. However, some agencies need to clearly outline the methodology that was used for recruitment, employment, advancement opportunities, monitoring, reviewing, and evaluating,” OPM said in a memo.

“Our review of agency FY 2020 DVAAP Plans is ongoing, and we will continue to look at needs that clearly outline the methodology that will be used for the upcoming fiscal year. The outlined methodology in these reports is needed so we may properly review and evaluate them to provide each individual agency feedback when needed,” it added.

The annual data collection is part of an initiative that touches on two areas of emphasis for federal agencies, hiring of veterans and hiring of those with self-reported disabilities.
