The OFCCP annually publishes the  Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) Benchmark on its Web site based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

Below is the Benchmark chart as presented on the DOL website:

Annual VEVRAA Benchmark Effective Dates

Because there are numerical goals (annual 7% utilization analysis required since 2014) for Individuals with Disabilities (IWDs) and a benchmark for hiring veterans, ensure you have a method of documenting all your outreach efforts and are tracking progress of those efforts.  At the very least, we suggest creating at least one targeted meaningful relationship with an outreach source for Individuals with Disabilities and an outreach source for Veterans.

To assist you, we have created several templates for you to customize for your use.
