SBA has several different types of certification programs. With certification, you can be eligible to successfully compete for government contracts that can help boost revenue and growth. The government awards billions of dollars in prime contracts annually with small business set-asides.

Join us as we discuss the requirements and process for two of these certification programs.

Veteran Small Business Certification Program (VETCERT)

Through the VetCert Program, veteran-owned small businesses (VOSBs) and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSBs) qualify to compete for approximately 5 percent of all federal-wide acquisition opportunities. The program allows certified VOSB and SDVOSB companies to apply for federal surplus property equipment. Eligibility Requirements: The business must be at least 51 percent owned and controlled by one or more veterans. For SDVOSB, it must be at least 51 percent owned and controlled by one or more veterans rated as service-disabled by the VA.

Historically Underutilized Business Zone Program (HUBZone)

This program fuels small business growth in historically underutilized business zones with a goal of awarding an average of 3 percent of federal contract dollars to HUBZone-certified companies each year. Eligibility Requirements: Eligible small businesses must have a principal office located in a HUBZone and at least 35 percent of its employees living in a HUBZone. Joining the HUBZone program makes your business eligible to compete for the program’s set-aside contracts and receive 10 percent price evaluation preference in full and open contract competitions.
