VETS-100/100A filing period extended to October 31
The filing deadline for VETS100 and/or 100A report(s) in the 2012 cycle has been extended to October 31, 2012. The
reporting cycle for 2012 opened in late July and the initial filing deadline for the reports was September 30. All paper reports and electronic files received at the Service Desk
by October 31 will be included as part of the 2012 filing cycle and will not be considered late.
Filing information is available on the DOL’s Veterans’ Employment and
Training Service (VETS) website. Upon the successful submission of a VETS-100 and/or VETS-100A report(s), federal contractors will receive an email confirmation of receipt
notification for their records. These confirmation notifications should be used as verification of submission by federal contracting officers when obligating funds to an awarded
contract. The copy of a submitted report is not required by VETS to suffice for a confirmation/validation of submission.
The Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment
Assistance Act of 1974 requires federal contractors and subcontractors subject to the Act’s affirmative action provisions to track and report annually to the secretary of labor
the number of employees in their workforces, by job category and hiring location, who belong to the specified categories of covered veterans. This reporting is done via the VETS-
100 and VETS-100A Reports, which are administered by VETS. Generally, the VETS-100/VETS-100A reporting cycle begins annually on or around August 1 and ends September 30.
The report required for contractors with federal contracts that were entered into before December 1, 2003 and have a value of $25,000 or more is the VETS-100 report. The report
required for contracts entered on or after December 1, 2003 in the amount of $100,000 or more is the VETS-100A report. A contract modified on or after December 1, 2003, which was
entered into before December 1, 2003, constitutes a new contract – and, therefore, requires the contractor to file a VETS-100A report (if the $100,000 or more threshold is met).
Contractors that have contracts that fall into both categories will be required to file both forms. An FAQ on these requirements is available at:
