Center for Verification and Evaluation Transformation

Over the past months, the VA Center for Evaluation and Certification (CVE) has undergone major changes and implemented significant improvements to its operations to better assist Veterans and become much more Veteran-friendly. The CVE White Paper outlines this organizational transformation and the many changes and improvements to overall CVE results and verification processing.

Verification Program Document Study

American University in Washington, DC, recently completed a research study of federal government and selected state/ organizational requirements for designated Veteran-Owned Small Business contracts. This study benchmarked the requirements of CVE with the U.S. Small Business Administration and other selected governmental organizations’ documentation required for verification or certification programs. 

According to the study report: “CVE’s documentation requirements are well within the norm and reflect the median for similar programs…” Thus, all of the eight federal and state focused organizations benchmarked against CVE requirements are generally very similar, and the American University study concludes that “CVE’s documentation and certification requirements fall within the median of the organizations benchmarked.” 

Regarding eligibility for set-aside Veteran business contracts, the study also concludes that, “The potential rewards for certification for these special contract considerations are great; therefore the various individual processes can be expected to evidence an appropriate degree of rigor in order to qualify.”  This rigor in the CVE verification process is therefore deemed as necessary in the study results, given the potential rewards for being verified. Learn more »
