Federal Contractor Veterans’ Employment Report (VETS-100-A)
WHO MUST FILE
This VETS-100A Report is to be completed by all nonexempt federal contractors and subcontractors with a contract or subcontract entered into or modified on or after December 1, 2003, in the amount of $100,000 or more with any department or agency of the United States for the procurement of personal property and non-personal services. Services include but are not limited to the following services: utility, construction, transportation, research, insurance, and fund depository, irrespective of whether the government is the purchaser or seller. Entering into a covered federal contract or subcontract during a given calendar year establishes the requirement to file a VETS-100A Report during the following calendar year. The VETS-100A Report is to be completed by all nonexempt federal contractors and subcontractors whose only contract or subcontract with any department or agency of the United States for the procurement of personal property and non-personal services (including construction) was entered into after December 1, 2003 (and did not become subject to 41 CFR part 61-300 through contract modification).
WHEN/WHERE TO FILE
This annual report must be filed no later than September 30. Mail to the address pre-printed on the front of the form.
LEGAL BASIS FOR REPORTING REQUIREMENTS
Title 38, United States Code, Section 4212(d) requires that federal contractors report at least annually the numbers of employees in the workforce by job category and hiring location, and the number of such employees, by job category and hiring location, who are qualified covered veterans. Federal contractors must report the total number of new hires during the period covered by the report and the number of such employees who are qualified covered veterans. Additionally, federal contractors must report on the maximum and minimum number of employees during the period covered by the report.
HOW TO SUBMIT THE VETS-100A REPORT
Single-establishment employers must file one completed VETS-100A Report. All multi-establishment employers, i.e., those doing business at more than one hiring location, must file (A) one VETS-100A Report covering the principal or headquarters office: (B) a separate VETS-100A Report for each hiring location employing 50 or more persons: and (C) EITHER, (i) a separate VETS-100A Report for each hiring location employing fewer than 50 persons, OR (ii) consolidated reports that cover hiring locations within one State that have fewer than 50 employees. Each state consolidated report must also list the name and address of the hiring locations covered by the report. Company consolidated reports such as those required by EEO-1 reporting procedures are NOT required for the VETS-100A Report. Completed reports for the headquarters location and all other hiring locations for each company should be mailed in one package to the address indicated on the front of the form. Employers may submit their reports via the Internet at http://www.dol.gov/vets/programs/fcp/main.htm . A company number is not required in order to use this method of submission. Employers that submit computer-generated output for more than 10 hiring locations to satisfy their VETS-100A reporting obligations must submit the output in the form of an electronic file. This file must comply with current DOL specifications for the layout of these records, along with any other specifications established by the Department for the applicable reporting year. Employers that submit VETS-100A Reports for ten locations or less are exempt from this requirement, but are strongly encouraged to submit an electronic file. In these cases, state consolidated reports count as one location each.
Employers must keep copies of the completed annual VETS-100A Report submitted to DOL for a period of one year.
HOW TO PREPARE THE FORMS
Answers to questions in all areas of the form are mandatory.
Multi-establishment employers submitting hard copy reports should produce facsimile copies of the headquarters form for reporting data on each location.
Type of Reporting Organization Indicate the type of contractual relationship (prime contractor or subcontractor) that the organization has with the Federal Government. If the organization serves as both a prime contractor and a subcontractor on various federal contracts, check both boxes.
Type of Form If a reporting organization only has a covered contract that was entered into or modified on or after December 1, 2003, it then must use a VETS-100A Report. If a reporting organization only has a covered contract that was entered before December 1, 2003, (and did not become subject to 41 CFR part 61-300 through contract modification) it must use a VETS-100 Report. If a reporting organization has a covered contract entered both before and on or after December 1, 2003, it then must use both a VETS-100 and a VETS-100A Report.
If a reporting organization submits only one VETS-100A Report for a single location, check the Single Establishment box. If the reporting organization submits more than one form, only one form should be checked as Multiple Establishment-Headquarters. The remaining forms should be checked as either Multiple Establishment-Hiring Location or Multiple Establishment-State Consolidated. For state consolidated forms, the number of hiring locations included in that report should be entered in the space provided. For each form, only one box should be checked within this block.
