CVE is hosting recurring training for interested Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned and Veteran-Owned Small Businesses on different aspects of the verification process. At the conclusion of each webinar, CVE will host a Town Hall on the Verification Program to solicit feedback from participants. Discussion during this part of the session will not be limited to the topics of Re-verification, Pre-Application, or How to Stay Verified.
Invitations to participate in these events will be sent to the firm’s email address listed on the Vendor Information Pages (VIP) profile. Everyone is encouraged to review their firm’s email address on VIP and update it as necessary.
Webinars are voluntary.
1st Tuesday of each month – Preparing for Re-verification Webinar & Town Hall
This training is designed for firms whose verification will expire in 5 months or thirty days.
3rd Tuesday of each month – Pre-Application Webinar & Town Hall
This training is designed for firms interested in submitted their first CVE Verification application. Also, firms who have been inactive in the program for some time and now desire to submit an application can also benefit from this session.
4th Tuesday of each month – How to stay Verified Webinar & Town Hall
This training is designed for firms who have been verified in six months.
The Pre-Decision Process (PDP) and the Pre-Determination Findings process (PDF) were designed to reduce denials by allowing firms to address and correct issues without receiving a denial determination.
Pre-Decision Process (PDP) – Allows Veteran Business owners to withdraw an application to fix any issues and immediately reapply for verification.
Pre-Determination Findings (PDF) – Inform Veteran Business Owners of easily correctable issues within their application. Owners have 48 hours to respond with their intent to correct and 5 days resubmit.
Note: Participation in either PDP or PDF do not guarantee verification.
CVE provides, free-of-charge, Verification Assistance Counselors to help with all aspects of the Verification application process. Counselors recieve regular training, which gives CVE full confidence in their expertise. You can find counselors on CVE’s web site.
