Doing Business with the VA and Veteran Verification
This workshop is an introduction to doing business with the Veterans Health Administration NCO 23. Learn how the VA buys, what they buy and how you can participate. Learn how your business can support the mission of the VA.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has a Vets First Verification Program. It affords verified firms owned by Veterans and Service-disabled Veterans the opportunity to compete for VA set asides. This session will give a brief overview of the application and review process.

Learn about the Veteran’s Business Outreach Center (VBOC). This program is a one-stop-shop for service members, veterans and military spouses looking to start, purchase or grow a business.
