Partnership Plus Important Information
  • VESID has encouraged all of their providers to become ENs.
    • Becoming an EN will in no way affect a provider’s status as a vendor
  • Partnership Plus cases can occur “behind the scene” without any action on behalf of VESID.
    • In other words, ENs are free to promote their ongoing employment support services to VESID clients in order to seek Ticket assignment upon VR case closure.
