Implementation Assessment of U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s Veterans Employment Initiative

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) enlisted the expertise of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University to understand how the federal government has implemented the VEI since its inception in 2009. This report is an in-depth, extensive study of that initiative. This report documents the results of an independent study to assess the policy implementation of the Veterans Employment Initiative (VEI).

The study considers the initiative’s efficacy and impact; identifies successful practices, implementation strategies, opportunities for improvement; and offers recommendations to senior policymakers and agency leaders on how best to ensure future success.
