This proposed rule would create a new part, 41 CFR part 61- 300, to implement certain provisions of the Jobs for Veterans Act (``JVA'') (Pub. L. 107-288) which amended the Vietnam Era Veterans'' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended (``VEVRAA''). Prior to amendment by the JVA, VEVRAA and its implementing regulations required all contractors and subcontractors with Federal contracts in excess of $25,000 to use the Federal Contractor Veterans' Employment Report VETS- 100 form (``VETS-100 Report'') to report their efforts toward hiring veterans in four specified categories. The JVA raised the VETS-100 reporting threshold from $25,000 to $100,000, and modified the categories of veterans to be tracked in the reports, for contracts entered on or after December 1, 2003.
