In February 2018, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Office of the Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) will begin the rollout of the new Vendor Information Pages (VIP) and VetBiz Case Management System to support the Vets First Verification Program. The new VIP system will enable OSDBU to more effectively manage all aspects of the Vets First Verification Program while improving the online experience of Veterans as well as the broader user community.
One major initiative is the re-designed VIP web interface that leverages AccessVA’s Single Sign-On (SSO) service to provide VIP users a single entry point for access to information, resources and online applications. Users will access the new VIP application using either DS Logon (Veterans) or a Symantec Norton account (Non-Veterans and representatives). Visit https://access.va.gov/accessva/about to learn more about AccessVA and its benefits.
We strongly encourage users to establish either a DS Logon or a Norton account prior to the implementation of the new system. This will ensure minimal loss of time and a smooth transition to the new VIP system.
All currently verified business owners (including verified business owners who plan to submit a reverification application) and business owners submitting initial applications need to establish a DS Logon (Veteran) or Norton’s Account (Non-Veteran). With the implementation of the new VIP system, a DS Logon or Norton account will be required for owners to receive notification to complete individually required documents such as the VA Form 0877 or to upload required documents such as personal taxes.
