    • veteransconference2014

The Pennsylvania Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) and the Southeast Pennsylvania Procurement Technical Assistance Center (SE PTAC) are excited to announce the first-ever joint Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of General Services (DGS), Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU), and the Veteran Affairs’ (VA) Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) conference for veteran business owners. This event will provide specific information on how veteran-owned businesses can take advantage of Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB) Verification status issued by the CVE.  

Verification status opens doors for procurement opportunities with both VA’s Veteran’s First Contracting Program and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s (PA) Diversity opportunities. Both programs require CVE verification for businesses to participate and bid on contracts.

This half-day conference is dedicated to procurement-ready veteran and service-disabled veteran business owners. Procurement-ready is the assurance that small businesses have positioned their company to compete in the targeted Federal and State acquisitions and contracts procurement processes. The conference will teach attendees how to ensure acquisition eligibilities through appropriate registrations, certifications, and verification procedures coupled with documentation compliance and readiness.

Experts from VA, OSDBU, and PA will be present to discuss their respective programs, provide tips on finding opportunities, and how to get the attention of those necessary to help veteran business owners succeed. Sub-contracting is also a valuable way to participate in both programs, therefore a nationally-known expert on teaming arrangements and joint ventures will be in attendance to provide advice to participants.

*Please note that as of 10.17.14 the event has reached capacity and registration is now closed.
