Supports veterans who own small businesses and also strives to reduce fraud within the Veterans Administration (VA). S. 3282 insists that veteran owned small businesses (VOSB), including those owned by veterans with service-related disabilities, certify compliance with rules to ensure that subcontracting constituting 50% or more of a VA-awarded contract must be with a VOSB classified as similarly situated, therefore limiting “pass-throughs” to larger subcontractors.
