Pagination or Media Count:
Executive Order 13518 created the Veterans Employment Initiative Task Force to bolster the recruiting of veterans into the Federal workforce. A key element of the Veterans Employment Initiative Task Forces effort was to overhaul the Department of Defenses DoD Transition Assistance Plan TAP. DoDs new plan, called Transition Goals Plans Success Transition GPS, was piloted at select DoD installations on July 9, 2012. It was developed by an interagency team of representatives from the Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, and Labor. The objective of Transition GPS is to strengthen, standardize, and expand counseling and guidance for Service members prior to leaving active duty. The Transition GPS program is expected to replace TAP by the end of 2013.
