As a part of the VAs Veterans First Program, contract set-asides are available for Veteran Owned Small Businesses and Service Disabled Small Businesses; however, an applicant must be verified to qualify. Verification is the process by which a Veteran is evaluated and determined eligible to be listed in the Vendor Information Pages (VIP) database. The Veterans Administration requires SDVOB firms to verify their status. At this time, other Federal agencies do not require SDVOB firms to be verified, but it is anticipated that the verification will be required for all agencies in the near term.
