Preference to Veteran Owned Business


The VA’s Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE)

As a part of the VA’s Veterans First Program, contract set-asides are available for Veteran Owned Small Businesses and Service Disabled Small Businesses; however, an applicant must be verified to qualify.  Verification is the process by which a Veteran is evaluated and determined eligible to be listed in the Vendor Information Pages (VIP) database.

The Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) is the office within VA that manages the verification process and verifies VOSB/SDVOSBs for inclusion in the VetBiz database.

U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) – Veteran Business Outreach Center Region IX

VBOC’s mission is to advance the growth and commercial competitiveness of veteran owned small business enterprises through education and services focusing on business development, technology deployment and e-commerce.

Federal Contracting set-asides

The Federal government is required by law to award 3% of the entire volume of contract awards to Service Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses.

Federal contracting set-asides are managed through a web-based portal which allows vendors to review Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps).

Nevada State Purchasing System

Many businesses consider the idea of selling their products or services to the government much too complicated and overwhelming.  In today’s marketplace, the government could become your best customer.  The Nevada Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) helps simplify the process and cut through the red tape, connecting Nevada businesses with lucrative opportunities
