The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) mission is to enable Veterans to gain access to economic opportunities by leveraging the federal procurement system and expanding participation of procurement-ready small businesses.  The VA OSDBU offers different program areas of services and support to assist you with your small business objectives.

Obtaining verification through the Vets First Verification Program, managed by Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE), extends eligibility for set-asides and sole source contracts to SDVOSBs and VOSBs.
