Vets First Verification Program

Vets First Verification Program


The Vets First Verification Program ensures that set-aside funds are awarded to legitimate firms owned and controlled by Veterans and Service-disabled Veterans. During Verification, the Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) verifies Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB) and Veteran Owned Small Businesses (VOSB)according to the tenets found in Title 38 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 74 that address Veteran eligibility, ownership, and control. In order to qualify for participation in the Veterans First Contracting Program, eligible SDVOSBs/VOSBs must first be verified.  As part of the MyVA Verification Process, applicants move through 5 stages; Pre-Qualification. Intake, Pre-application Review Assessment and Decision.


A new hierarchy for open market procurements places highest priority with SDVOSBs first, then VOSBs.  The Veterans Benefits, Healthcare, and Information Technology Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-461) provides the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) with unique authority for SDVOSB and VOSB set-aside and sole source contracts.


For more information regarding this program please visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website.
