Public Law (P.L.) 109-461 entitled “Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006” provides VA with unique authority for contracting with SDVOSB and VOSB.  A new procurement hierarchy within VA for open market procurements was created which places highest priority with SDVOSB then VOSB.  These small business groups are followed by 8(a), HUBZone, Women-Owned Small Business, then all other small businesses.  This procurement authority, and its subsequent implementation, is a logical extension of VA’s mission to care for our nation’s Veterans.  VA refers to this program as the Veterans First Contracting Program.
