Title: Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2022-009, Certification of Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses 

DoD, GSA, and NASA will amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement Small Business Administration (SBA) changes to the certification program for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB), as required by section 862 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (Pub. L. 116-283).  Section 862 transfers responsibility for SDVOSB certification to the SBA as of January 1, 2023.  This rule will clarify the certification requirements for SDVOSBs to be eligible for the award of a sole source or set-aside SDVOSB contract. This rule promotes equity in Federal procurement.
