VA’s Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) is aware of the issues and complications caused by the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and its effect on our country and the small business community.
To mitigate the adverse impact of the problems veterans may face with COVID-19, CVE is extending the verification eligibility period an additional 60 days, for all firms verified that are scheduled to expire between April 1, 2020 through May 31, 2020. For example: If a firm’s eligibility expires on April 26, 2020, it will be extended to June 25, 2020. CVE will continue to process all re-verification applications that have been submitted during this period. Although the period of eligibility has been extended, please remember that verified firms have an ongoing obligation pursuant to 38 C.F.R. § 74.15(b), to inform CVE of any changes made during the firm’s period of eligibility that would impact the firm’s ability to maintain compliance. CVE will not issue new determination letters as a result of this administrative action. Contracting offices will continue to use the online VIP database to determine a firm’s eligibility. CVE will continue to uphold VA’s ICARE values to provide the best customer service possible during this extraordinary time.
