Veteran-Owned Small Businesses Now Must Prove Their Status.
01/11/11

In continuing coverage, Government Executive (1/5, Brodsky) reports, "Small or veteran-owned businesses now must provide the Veterans Affairs Department with documentation proving their status before being considered for priority set-aside contracts, VA announced on Monday. The rule change, which implements a provision in the 2010 Veterans Benefits Act," is VA's "latest effort to prevent unqualified firms from winning small business awards. 'VA is committed to doing business with, as well as supporting and protecting, veteran-owned small businesses,' Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki said" in commenting on the change. Washington Technology (1/5, Weigelt) publishes a similar story.
