In keeping with the EPCC Contracting Opportunities Center APEX Accelerator’s ongoing effort to provide quality and informative trainings, we present to you the Veteran Small Business Certification (VetCert) Program.
Certification with SBA allows service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSBs) to compete for federal sole-source and set-aside contracts across the federal government. Certified veteran-owned small businesses (VOSBs) have additional opportunities to pursue sole-source and set-aside contracts at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) under the VA’s Vets First program.
SBA’s new Veteran Small Business Certification program implements changes from the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (NDAA 2021) which transferred the certification function from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to SBA as of January 1, 2023. The transfer provides veterans with a central support point for their small business certification needs.
The final rule, which provides program and governance guidance, was published in the Federal Register on November 29, 2022.
This workshop will help businesses determine if verification is right for them, learn regulation and eligibility requirements for VOSB/SDVOSB status, and find out How/where to get verified.
