Compliance Assistance —
Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended

Synopsis of Law

Covered contracts entered into by any department or agency for the procurement of personal property and non-personal services (including construction) for the United States, shall contain a provision requiring that the party contracting with the United States shall take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified special disabled veterans, veterans of the Vietnam era and any other veterans who served on active duty during a war or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized. The provisions of this section shall apply to any subcontract entered into by a prime contractor in carrying out any contract for the procurement of personal property and non-personal services (including construction) for the United States.

There are currently two different coverage thresholds under VEVRAA.

  • The VEVRAA regulations found at 41 C.F.R. part 60-250 generally apply to Government contracts of $25,000 or more entered into before December 1, 2003. The threshold amount for coverage is a single contract of $25,000 or more; contracts are not aggregated to reach the coverage threshold. If a Federal contractor received a government contract of at least $50,000 prior to December 1, 2003, an AAP must be developed in accordance with the 41 C.F.R. part 60-250 VEVRAA regulations. As explained below, some contracts that were entered into before December 1, 2003 will be subject to the regulations found at 41 C.F.R. part 60-300.
  • The regulations found at 41 C.F.R. part 60-300 apply to Government contracts entered into on or after December 1, 2003. The threshold amount for coverage and AAP threshold coverage is a single contract of $100,000 or more, entered into on or after December 1, 2003; contracts are not aggregated to reach the coverage threshold.
