Open for CommentCVE rule change

On February 21, 2017, the VA issued a CVE rule change proposing that Center for Veterans Enterprise(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 inVA acquisitions set-aside for SDVOSB/VOSBs.

This interim final rule require reverification of SDVOSB/VOSB status every three years rather than every two-years. Comments must be received by the VA by April 24, 2017.

Written comments may be sent to Director, Regulations Management(00REG1), Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Ave. NW., Room 1068, Washington, DC 20420; fax to (202) 273–9026; or email through Comments should indicate that they are submitted in response to ‘‘RIN 2900–AP93—VA Veteran-Owned Small Business Verification Guidelines.’’
