CVE is highly supportive of the Verification Counselor program as this program provides a valuable service to Veterans who are going through the verification application process.  CVE provides responses to counselor inquiries as a means to inform applicants about the Veterans First Contracting Program.  However, 5 CFR § 2635.702(c) prohibits agency endorsements of any product, service or enterprise.  Accordingly, CVE’s resources are not available to certified verification Counselors who accept fees for their counseling services.  CVE will not provide training, inquiry responses and other resources to paid Counselors.  CVE Certified Counselors charge a fee will be removed from the VA OSDBU website.  CVE will continue to support PTAC and Veteran Partner Organizations that do not charge a fee.
