VERA/VSIP offering


Q. What are the chances that a buyout (VERA/VSIP) will be offered to federal agencies this year?

A. Your question has been sent to the Department of Unanswerable Questions. While it’s likely that some agency or agencies will offer VERAs, VSIPS or both, and do that for some people at some locations, we can’t foretell what those will be. As a rule, we only learn about those offers after they’ve been made.
