Press Release

The Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) acknowledges Veterans’ concerns regarding the possible FOIA release of information received from them as part of their verification application.  First and foremost the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and CVE must follow the guidance of the VA Office of General Counsel, and laws pertaining to information subject to FOIA.  We are required to disclose:

  • Name of Company
  • Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number
  • Business Address
  • Business City
  • Business State
  • Business Zip Code
  • Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB)
  • Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB)
  • Bonding Level
  • Number of Employees
  • Email Address

Any privileged or confidential commercial, or financial information contained in applications may be subject to withholding on a case by case basis.  We are in dialogue with the Department’s Office of General Counsel and FOIA subject matter experts to determine what additional information could be provided in response to a FOIA request.  A decision has not been made at this time.  To the fullest extent possible, and as allowed by law, every consideration will be taken into account to limit the exposure of a businesses’ proprietary information, and the personal information of all owners.
