On February 21, 2017, the VA issued a Center for Veterans Enterprise (CVE) rule change proposing that CVE verified businesses be reverified for compliance every three-years instead of every two-years. The VA’s proposal implements a section of the Veterans Benefits, HealthCare, and Information Technology Act of 2006, that requires the VA to verify ownership and control of veteran owned small businesses (VOSB), including service-disabled veteran owned small businesses (SDVOSB) so these firms can participate in VA acquisitions set-aside for SDVOSB/VOSBs.
