When performing market research, contracting officers shall review the Vendor Information Pages (VIP) database at as required by subpart 819.70.  The contracting officer will search the VIP database by applicable North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes to determine if two or more verified service-disabled Veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSBs) and Veteran-owned small businesses (VOSBs), in the appropriate NAICS code, are listed as verified in the VIP database.  The contracting officer will determine if identified SDVOSBs or VOSBs are capable of performing the work and likely to submit an offer/quote at a fair and reasonable price that offers best value to the Government.  If so, the contracting officer shall set-aside the requirement in the contracting order of priority (see 819.7005 and 819.7006).

810.002  Market research procedures.

Contracting officers shall record VIP queries in the solicitation file by printing the results of the search(s) along with specific query used to generate the search(s).
