In our February 6, 2013 Client Alert regarding new developments for service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (“SDVOSBs”), we discussed the U.S. Court of Federal Claims’ (“COFC”) decision in KWV, Inc. v. United States and the U.S. Government Accountability Office’s recent report on the Department of Veterans Affairs’ verification process for SDVOSBs. Yesterday, the COFC issued another ruling that impacts the issues discussed in our February 6th Client Alert and that ruling will have important ramifications for veteran ownership in SDVOSBs. This decision involved a firm that had been verified as an SDVOSB by the VA’s Center for Veterans Enterprise only to have that decision contradicted a few months later by the VA’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization in response to a post-award protest.
