A Guide for your SDVOSB Application
To apply your Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) for a Vendor Information Pages (VIP) profile, many documents are required and you may be overwhelmed by them. Here, we will provide a list for you, a checklist if you will, to serve as a guide in your application process.
Below are the documents that the CVE will require from you.
Pre-Application Documents for your SDVOSB
All pre-application documents are needed by the Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) to jumpstart your application process. While your application is being reviewed, additional documents may be requested from you by your evaluator. It is important to note that you must not upload any password-protected documents, as the CVE will not be able to open and verify them.
This pertains to the resumes of all owners, directors, partners, officers, and other key personnel. The resume should include a chronological list of the current and previous occupations, job description and roles, educational attainment, skills, and other data. This will help the CVE identify is the veteran owner has the capability to manage the company.
2. Joint Venture Agreement
This is a written agreement which identifies the following: the nature of the joint venture, the capital and resources of each joint venture, and their rights and responsibilities. It will help the CVE determine if the veteran has the majority control over the venture.
Other Required Documents for your Application
This includes business licenses, permits, and accreditations. These licenses are used to determine if your SDVOSB is operating legally, under its declared business type, and if professionals employed have up-to-date licenses.
2. Tax 1040
This includes IRS Form 1040 and all its attachments, Schedules C, Schedules E, and W-2s. Owners with equal to or more than 33% ownership of the company must also submit their Personal Tax Filings from the previous year. You will also be required to submit your Business Tax filings in the past 3 years.
This refers to the Payroll Distribution Ledger or W-2s in the past year (full year), and year-to-date (January to present) for all employees.
4. Signature Cards
This refers to the card that you sign when you open an account in bank or a financial institution. It must be duly authenticated by your bank, and must contain the identification of the depositor. It must also bear the name of the company’s officers who are authorized to issue checks and transfer funds.
Copies of the last 5 contracts and/or proposals awarded to your SDVOSB, which will include bids and work agreements.
6. Management Agreements
These agreements refer to management and service agreements you may have with service providers, which will be attached to an occupy lease agreement.
7. Franchise Agreement
It refers to a contract between a franchisor and a franchisee, and will only be needed if your SDVOSB is part of a franchise.
8. Mentor Protégé Agreement
This document will help the CVE identify if there is any undue dependence between the mentor and protégé.
The VIP application process is not an easy one, and it will help if you are fully informed of the paper works that you must prepare, to avoid any delay and roadblocks in your application. Due research and preparation can help your application become a smooth process.
