Issue: The Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) requires electronic signatures for VA Form 0877 and the questionnaire in the Vendor Information Profile (VIP) match.
As part of the Initiation portion of the verification process, owners are required to complete VA Form 0877, verifying status eligibility and ownership of the organization. Once complete the signature is auto populated based on the names provided previously in the form.
The Owner is also required to complete the VIP application/questionnaire to create their VIP profile. Unlike VA Form 0877, the owner has to type in their signature. The signature on the VIP application/questionnaire must match the signature provided on VA Form 0877.
If the signature provided on the VIP application/questionnaire does not match the signature on the VA Form 0877, the application cannot be corrected and will have to be completed again. The digital signature on the VIP application/questionnaire cannot be altered after it has been submitted.
To ensure your company's success, please utilize any of CVE's resources including: Verification Assistance Program; Verification Assistance Briefs, Verification Self-Assessment Tool, and CVE Verified Counselors.
