The United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is requesting that agencies submit their Disabled Veterans Affirmative Action Program (DVAAP) Plan Certification for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 and Accomplishment Report for FY 2009 to OPM by December 1, 2009. The DVAAP reporting requirements and contents for the report are in Subpart C of part 720 of title 5 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

As Federal agencies’ develop and submit their DVAAP plans and reports to OPM, this is an excellent opportunity for you to share those agency accomplishments, successes, and practices in efforts to recruit, hire, and train disabled veterans.  We have attached to this letter a sample FY 2010 DVAAP Plan Certification and outline for the FY 2009 Accomplishment report.

DISABLED VETERANS AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PROGRAM (DVAAP)

Subpart C of part 720 of title 5 of the Code of Federal Regulations lists the elements of an agency DVAAP plan and the criteria for accomplishment reports.  Under the DVAAP, an agency must submit the following:

A.  A signed certification that your agency has a DVAAP plan for FY 2010.  

We have included a suggested format for plan certification.

B.  A report of FY 2009 accomplishments in hiring and promoting qualified disabled veterans. 

Agency annual accomplishment reports must describe:

1. Methods used to recruit and employ qualified disabled veterans, especially those who are 30 percent or more disabled.    

2. Methods used to provide or improve internal advancement opportunities for disabled veterans.  Please indicate specific efforts and accomplishments in providing developmental (formal training) opportunities for veterans in your narrative.

3. A description of how the activities of major operating components and field installations were monitored, reviewed, and evaluated.

4. An explanation of the agency’s progress in implementing its affirmative action plan during the fiscal year.  Where progress has not been shown, the report will cite reasons for the lack of progress, along with specific plans for overcoming cited obstacles to progress.

We ask that only one report, with cumulative data for the entire agency, be submitted to OPM.
