Mathematica conducted an assessment of the Workforce System's Implementation of the Priority of Service (POS) Provision of the Jobs for Veterans Act of 2002 to examine the status of current POS implementation efforts. This report, funded by the Employment and Training Administration in the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), provides a detailed description of the activities and practices of a select set of American Job Centers, documents promising practices in place at these centers, and identifies challenges to POS implementation. DOL publicly released this report on December 18, 2013, through the issuance of Training and Employment Notice No. 17-13.
