The VA will begin using the SBA's eligibility rules to verify SDVOSBs and VOSBs beginning October 1, 2018.

The consolidation of the eligibility rules will reduce confusion--but in my eyes, one very important question remains unanswered.

The government's threat to terminate a contractor was improper because the contractor wasn't in default--and the resulting settlement agreement was tainted by coercion.

An Air Force Contracting officer told a contractor that it could appeal a termination to the Civilian Board of Contract Appeals. But the CBCA doesn't have jurisdiction over Air Force appeals, so the appeal was dismissed, notwithstanding the CO's bad advice.

VetBiz verification isn't required for non-VA SDVOSB contracts, as reiterated in a recent SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals decision.

The SBA has confirmed that a protege under the All Small Mentor-Protege Program may only have two mentors over the protege's lifetime. But is this approach wise?
