5 JobCentral Selects XPAND Corporation for VetCentral Worked with Department of Labor since 1993 Specialty in Large Scale Workforce Tools Design, Development, and Maintenance of CareerOneStop System (COS) Three Year Engagement with VETS to Develop a Solution for JVA Compliance: Comprehensive program knowledge Unique knowledge and access to information Developed Prototype in 2005

6 “VetCentral” A web clearinghouse, a single point for posting FCJL jobs. Automatically identifies appropriate delivery points for jobs and distributes them accordingly -- State Job Banks (through Job Central) Comprehensive One-Stop Centers and One-Stop Affiliates DVOPs/LVERs All jobs auto-coded to O*NET. Provides multiple options for Federal Contractor job posting, including a free service. Provides management and accounting reports for contractors.

7 The Challenge Jobs for Veterans Act changes how compliance takes place:  The Old World -- AJB provided contractors a single place to post jobs (electronically) and be in compliance  The New World (Post AJB and with JVA) --  Under JVA, contractors must post jobs with the “appropriate employment service delivery system”  OFCCP has not yet published implementing regulations which clarify what this means and how it will be applied  Existing regulations stipulate only two places to file jobs: local employment service offices and AJB (closed on June 29th)  On July 1 st, contractors face getting jobs to some 3,500 possible locations

8 Contractors with centralized job distribution mechanisms will face a significant administrative burden to post job orders with the “appropriate employment delivery system” Difficulties in identifying appropriate contacts and managing distribution of job postings could impede compliance Need for audit trails, recordkeeping, and reports Hurdles may encourage administrative loopholes that do not fulfill JVA’s intended goals The Problem
