About Employment Service Providers
Both VR and the provider share responsibility in assisting the VR customer to achieve a successful outcome.
VR designates a Provider Manager, housed in VR Headquarters, to work with the Provider on all things related to registration, monitoring, technical assistance, training and administrative matters.
Provider Liaisons serve as an intermediary between the Provider, VR Headquarters and Field office staff. Provider Liaisons are assigned by county. They provide technical assistance and training.
