VA Offers Veteran Owned and SDVOSB Free Training to Compete for Set-Aside Procurements

March 27th, 2015

Attention Veteran Business Owners (be sure to join our newsletter to be kept up to date about news similar to this):

Center for Veterans Enterprise SDVOSB Logo and VOSB BadgeThe Department of Veterans Affairs created the Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) to reduce the number of businesses that were fraudulently claiming Veteran status, as well as protect the competitive edge that Veteran small businesses VA set-aside contracts provide to the Veteran-owned small businesses. Small business owners who wish to pursue VA set-aside procurement opportunities must be verified as a service-disabled Veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) or Veteran-owned small business (VOSB) by the CVE.

The verification program has a strict and rigorous process to ensure businesses are in fact owned and controlled by a Veteran, or multiple Veterans. To assist firms interested in applying for verification, CVE has established a Verification Assistance Program which includes verification assistance briefs, fact sheets, and FAQs, covering every aspect of regulation CFR 38 Part 74 and the verification process. You can find it all on the VA’s website.


CVE has developed a partnership to grow and sustain an inventory of verification assistance counselors. Referred to as CVE Certified Verification Assistance Counselors, these individuals provide “no-cost” assistance to Veterans throughout the verification application process. Counselors are located nationwide, and only those listed on CVE’s website are provided continued training and support, and endorsed by CVE. Veterans have reported paying as much as $20,000 for similar services. Through CVE, these services are free.

VA Certified Counselors

Verification Counselors listed on our website have been trained by the Department of Veterans Affairs through the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization.  For convenience, Counselors are listed by state.  However, Veterans are encouraged to contact any Counselor that is accessible to them, not just those listed in their home states.

CVE is highly supportive of the Verification Counselor program as this program provides a valuable service to Veterans who are going through the application process.  CVE provides responses to counselor inquiries as a means to inform applicants about the Veterans First Contracting Program.  However, 5 CFR § 2635.702(c) prohibits agency endorsements of any product, service or enterprise.  Accordingly, CVE’s resources are not available to certified verification Counselors who are currently accepting fees for their counseling services.  CVE will not provide training, inquiry responses and other resources to paid Counselors.  CVE Certified Counselors found to be charging a fee will be removed from the VETBIZ website.  CVE will continue to support PTAC and Veteran Partner Organizations (VSOs) that do not charge a fee. Click here to find a counselor near you.

Be sure to add your business’ profile to the Veteran Owned Business Directory.  Once verified and approved, your profile will join nearly 22,000 other VOBs/SDVOSBs and be immediately searchable by 1,000 of daily visitors!

Helping Hands for Freedom’s Moon Valley Country Club Golf Tournament

March 24th, 2015

golf-banner3HHFF-logo 2Helping Hands’ Primary Mission: is to support the surviving spouse and family of a warrior killed in action. It can take up to 6 months to receive the death benefit so financial challenges often accompany the loss of a loved one. In addition if they are living on base they are given a very short time to find their own housing elsewhere. This cause is close to my heart as my son did two tours in Afghanistan as a Marine and returned injured. Thankfully not seriously but enough he was not allowed to re-enlist. Visit Helping Hands for Freedom’s website for event details!

Event Date: Monday, April 27, 2015

Time: 10:30 am to 5:00 pm

Location: Moon Valley Country Club, 151 West Moon Valley Drive, Phoenix, AZ 85023

Phone: (602) 942-0000


Your golf includes lunch, dinner and the comedy show. This year we have a fantastic comedian named Greg Hahn. He is a former Marine and has a manic energy that resembles Robin Williams. He has appeared on Comedy Central and Conan among others along with winning the old Ed McMahon talent contest. He did a show for us two years ago and had people rolling in the aisles. Check him out at www.greghahn.com So if you can’t make golf you can attend dinner and the show for $30. Your friends or spouse can also attend the dinner and show for $30.

We also need silent auction items so if you have something you want to donate or know of someone who does please don’t be shy about hooking up. Rumor has it we may have guitars signed by Gene Simmons of Kiss who is becoming a big supporter of ours, along with Alice Cooper and John Mellencamp. Ping has donated a set of G 30 irons and there will be many other items available to purchase in order to support Helping Hands For Freedom (HHFF).
