Veteran Owned Small Businesses (VOSB) is a program run by the US Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) that verifies small businesses are veteran-owned. It was created by The Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-461). Once verified, these businesses can be awarded set-aside and sole source contracts. Many businesses claim to be a verified VOSB but aren't.

We are also a part of the Veteran-Friendly Business Enterprise (VBE) program through the State of Ohio. The VBE program applies to all state agencies' purchases made by bid or proposal under Chapter 125 of the Ohio Revised Code (R.C.). Essentially, the program allows for the following:
§ prices on bids submitted by certified veteran-friendly businesses to exceed those prices on bids submitted by businesses not certified by up to five percent and still be eligible for winning the award; and
§ scores on proposals submitted by certified veteran-friendly businesses to be up to five percent lower than the proposal scores submitted by businesses not certified and still be eligible for winning the award.
