Through its investment in service members, the VCP is building on skills that veterans acquire during military service, skills that include leadership, teamwork, and attention to detail. Working under the direct supervision of professionals in the field of archaeology, veterans receive competitive pay while learning through technical training in a peer-to-peer veteran's environment. By providing a bridging experience to the public sector, the program facilitates these valuable members of society to move on to find permanent employment and to enroll in institutions of higher education.
The VCP is currently operated by a government contractor called the 8(a) Cogstone-Berger Joint Venture. The joint venture is a partnership between Cogstone Resource Management Inc. and Louis Berger. Forensic Digital Imaging (FDI) is a subcontractor to the joint venture.
