This final rule revises the regulations in 41 CFR part 60-250 implementing the nondiscrimination and affirmative action provisions of the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended (``Section 4212'' or ``VEVRAA''). The regulations in part 60- 250 implement the nondiscrimination and affirmative action provisions of VEVRAA prior to their amendment in 2002 by the Jobs for Veterans Act (``JVA''), and apply to contracts entered into before December 1, 2003.

The effect of this final rule is to conform the mandatory job listing provision in the part 60-250 regulations to the parallel provision in the regulations of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (``OFCCP'') implementing the JVA amendments to VEVRAA in 41 CFR part 60-300. Today's final rule also clarifies that the regulations in part 60-250 apply to any contract or subcontract of at least $25,000 entered into before December 1, 2003, and that the regulations in part 60-300, not the part 60-250 regulations, apply to such a contract or subcontract if it is modified on or after December 1, 2003 and the contract or subcontract as modified is for $100,000 or more.
