Self Certification Information:

There is no federal SDVOSB certification program.  The service disabled veteran business owner self represents his or her service-disabled status and small business status in the contract representations and certifications. In order to place an offer on a Federal contract, the SDVOSB must be registered in the Government's Central Contractor Registration (CCR). Once the SBC is registered in CCR, and an offer is submitted on a Federal Contract, the SDVO SBC will need to fill out an "On-Line Representations and Certifications Application."
