Title: CVE Site Inspection.
OMB Control Number: 2900—NEW.
Type of Review: New collection.
Abstract: OSDBU and CVE protect the integrity and validity of VA's Veterans First Contracting Program by conducting a Risk Mitigation Program. This program helps to ensure that only eligible firms who meet the criteria of 38 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Part 74 are entered into the Vendor Information Pages (VIP) database. Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) participating of this program are either randomly selected for Post-verification Site Visit Audits or based upon risk assessment. OSDBU needs to determine the effectiveness of the site inspections that are part of the CVE Verification Program/Risk Mitigation, and to learn about the participants' experiences and satisfaction levels.
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
