CVE is highly supportive of the Verification Counselor Program as it provides a valuable service to Veterans who are going through the Vets First 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 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 Verification Counselors who charge a fee will be removed from this directory. CVE will continue to support PTACs and their efforts to support the Veteran community.
