On February 15, Larry Hall, Secretary of the NC Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA), held a kick-off meeting for the new Veterans Information Platform Project (VIPP). Partnering with the NC Government Data Analytics Center (GDAC), the NC Department of Information Technology (DIT) and the Statistical Analysis System (SAS), the project is a secure information sharing program, which will facilitate collaboration among Veteran service state agencies. VIPP will streamline the process of applying for jobs and other services for Veterans and their families.
