Kaine Executive Order 85

Governor Kaine signs Executive Order 85

Governor Kaine recently signed Executive Order 85 which requires sub-recipients (e.g., local governments and school divisions) that use American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) grant funds to hire employees to post job openings on the Virginia Workforce Connection, an online job posting service maintained by the Virginia Employment Commission.  Vendors or contractors engaged by school divisions that hire employees with ARRA funds received from school divisions are also subject to this requirement.  School divisions should make vendors or contractors aware of this requirement as part of the procurement process.  Vendors/contractors are responsible for accessing and posting their ARRA-funded jobs on the Virginia Workforce Connection.


Executive Order 85 may be viewed at: http://www.governor.virginia.gov/Initiatives/ExecutiveOrders/pdf/EO_85.pdf.

The Virginia Workforce Connection Web site can be accessed at:  https://www.vawc.virginia.gov/default.asp

School divisions and vendors/contractors must create a Virginia Workforce Connection account online before posting job vacancies at this site.


For assistance with this process, please contact the Virginia Employment Commission at (804) 225-3116 or via e-mail at StimulusJobs@vec.virginia.gov.
