Veteran Owned Business Certification Program Update

NOTE: The Alaska PTAC has been renamed as Alaska APEX Accelerator. This change occurred on September 15, 2023. Learn why.

Section 862 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 provided for the elimination of the VA’s certification program altogether, requiring that all SDVOSBs working with the VA or any other federal agency eventually be certified through SBA.  That eventuality starts January 1, 2023.  The process of veteran self-certification through the System for Award Management (SAM) will no longer be enough to be eligible for SDVOSB set-aside solicitations for all agency solicitations – not just for Veteran Affairs (VA).
