Participants will gain knowledge of priority of service
`Priority of service'means, with respect to any qualified job training program, that a covered person shall be given priority over nonveterans for the receipt of employment, training, and placement servicesprovided under that program. (Chapter 42, section 4215)
`Qualified job training program'is any workforce preparation, development, or delivery program or service that is directly funded, in whole or in part, by the Department of Labor. (Chapter 42, section 4215)
A covered person is entitled to priority of service under any qualified job training program if the person otherwise meets the eligibility requirements for participation in such program.
This definition differs from the Wagner-Peyser definition that appears at 38 U.S.C. 4211(4)(A) and includes a “180 day” criterion
§ 1010.300(b)(2) of the Rule states: The processes for identifying covered persons are not required to verify the status of an individual as a veteran or eligible spouse at the point of entry unless they immediately undergo eligibility determination and enrollment in a program. (emphasis added)

The purpose of the report is “to identify any need for possible action to ensure that services are provided in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.”
VETS monitors expenditures reported by grantees to ensure funds are spent in accordance with cost principles established for Federal awards to state government agencies as well as approved State Plans.
The Audit tool addresses the findings that:
1. Priority of Service
2. Number of veterans receiving IS DVOP vs. LVER
3. Services provided to veterans by non-veterans staff vs. veteran staff
4. Percentage of VETS staff serving veterans vs. non-veterans
Reports indicate that the veterans in the AJC are being referred to training at a 67% rate. The non-veterans in the center are being referred at a rate of 92%. Is this an issue? Why/why not?
Reporting results show that the LVER in the office is conducting Intensive Services for 12% of the veterans. Is this an issue? Why/why not?
The LVER is providing more direct services to veterans than the DVOP in the office. Is this an issue? Why/why not?
Reports identify that the AJC/ES staff is serving approximately 39% of the veterans who come into the AJC. The JVSG staff is serving 61% of the veterans. Is this an issue? Why/why not?
This quarter the DVOP served 15% non-veterans and 85% veterans. Is this an issue? Why/why not?
