If you want to provide for up to the minute recovery in case of a failure I would also schedule transaction log backups. This time frame of the schedule is up to you but we recommend 15 minutes to our clients.

I would also abandon the Veritas part and use SQL Server native backups (then use Veritas to backup the resulting files)

I would probably do a weekly full, daily differential and regular T-logs (hourly, 15 minutes, etc. depending on your trannsaction volume).
