Effective January 1st, the SBA will take over the verification and evaluation of certifying veteran-owned small businesses. If you’re already VOSB or SDVOSB certified, verified by the VA, there is nothing you need to do at this time. But if you’re self-certified, there will be some guidance for what you need to do next. You can learn more about it here or here, or go straight to the Frequently Asked Questions page.
