Veterans Business Program

VA Small and Veteran Business Programs implement the requirements to aid, counsel, assist, and protect the interests of small and Veteran business concerns to ensure that the federal government awards these businesses a fair proportion of total VA property and services purchases, contracts, and subcontracts. For acquisition purposes, small and Veteran businesses must be independently owned and operated, not dominant in the field of operation in which they are bidding on government contracts, and otherwise qualify as small businesses according to Small Business Administration (SBA) criteria and size standards.
