Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Procurement Program [Updated July 6, 2022]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Summary: "The Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) Procurement Program is intended to provide SDVOSBs greater access to federal contracting opportunities. [...] This report examines the SDVOSB program's legislative origins, SDVOSB contracting data, and recent congressional action relating to SDVOSB program certification. The report discusses P.L. [Public Law] 116-283, the William M. (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, which requires VA to transfer, by January 1, 2023, the maintenance of its SDVOSB database to the SBA, provide the SBA compensation for doing so, and abolish VA's Center for Verification and Evaluation and transfer its function to the SBA. In addition, the SBA is required to establish a government-wide SDVOSB certification and periodic recertification process by January 1, 2023. VA [Department of Veterans Affairs] is to continue to determine whether an individual qualifies as a service-disabled veteran."
