Providing Feedback on Draft National Standards of Practice

Prior to publication of national standards in VA policy, the general public and VA employees are invited to participate in the development process by providing feedback on draft standards. Public and employee participation is appreciated and will help VA ensure the quality of the standards. VA will give serious consideration to all comments received on each national standard.

Each draft national standard of practice will be posted for a period of 60 days to both the Federal Register and to a VA intranet page for employees to provide comments. The Federal Register is the official publication site for rules, proposed rules, and notices of Federal agencies and organizations, as well as executive orders and other presidential documents. VA employees may provide feedback through VA internal mechanisms.

This website page provides the posting date, closing date, and identifying information for each occupation's national standard.
