The Small Business Administration (SBA) is amending its regulations to implement a statutory requirement to certify Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB) Concerns and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) Concerns participating in the Veteran Small Business Certification Program. Section 862 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 amended VOSB / SDVOSB requirements to transfer the responsibility for certification of VOSBs and SDVOSBs to SBA as of January 1, 2023, and created a certification requirement at SBA for SDVOSBs seeking sole-source and set-aside contracts across the federal government. Effective on January 1, 2023, this rule will implement the changes. Read more here. SBA’s related press release on the transition is available here.
