Why Should My Business Get Verified
As a part of VA’s Veterans First Program, contract set-asides are available for Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (VOSB) and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB) that achieve VA Verification. VA is one of the largest procurement organizations in the federal government, annually spending over $3 billion with verified Service-Disabled and Veteran-Owned Small Businesses. A verified firm is eligible to subcontract with VA’s large prime contractors and has access to other federal and state agencies that include VA verification in solicitations.
VA verified firms may display the trademark protected SDVOSB or VOSB logo. Use of the logo communicates the firm has undergone a comprehensive review to validate its status as an eligible Veteran-owned and controlled firm.
