VA Veteran-Owned Small Business Verification Guidelines
This document adopts as a final rule, without change, the interim final rule published in the Federal Register on June 27, 2012. This document implements a portion of the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006, which requires the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to verify ownership and control of veteran- owned small businesses (VOSBs), including service-disabled veteran- owned small businesses (SDVOSBs), in order for these firms to participate in VA acquisitions set asides for SDVOSB/VOSBs. Specifically, this final rule requires re-verification of SDVOSB/VOSB status only every 2 years rather than annually. The purpose of this change is to reduce the administrative burden on SDVOSB/VOSBs regarding participation in VA acquisitions set asides for these types of firms. Verified SDVOSB/VOSBs are placed on the Vendor Information Page (VIP) at www.vetbiz.gov.
