Veterans Employment and Training Service (VETS) Needs to Strengthen Management Controls Over the Transition Assistance Program (TAP)
A performance audit of the VETS management controls over the TAP. TAP was established in 1990 to provide employment assistance -- such as resume preparation and interviewing techniques -- to separating and retiring military personnel and their spouses during their period of transition from military service to the civilian workplace. Due to the severe economic recession, the unemployment rate of separating and retiring military personnel rose from 9.8% in 2009 to 11.8% in 2010. The rate of unemployment among returning soldiers aged 18-24 is 22%. This audit answers the question: Did VETS' TAP have effective management controls to ensure it provided employment assistance to vets? Charts and tables. A print on demand pub.
