FAQ - Verification Process
Initiation is the first phase of the Verification process. During this time the Center for Veterans Enterprise (CVE) will verify some of your basic company information. The staff may take a more in depth look at your company profile. They may also perform other background checks on your business and/or business owners, upload documents, and make recommendations on your verification record. Your business will then move to the Examination phase.
