​Federal agency leaders have just two months to begin complying with President’s Trump’s “Buy America” executive order.

Federal agency leaders have just two months to begin complying with President’s Trump’s “Buy America” executive order, Federal Times reports.

The Office of Management and Budget and the Department of Commerce released a guidance on June 30 instructing agencies how to follow through with the new administration’s order for agencies to review and assess free trade agreements with foreign government contractors, and urging domestic contracts instead, according to the report.

The administration is requiring agency leaders comply with the order, including their use of waivers, by Sept. 17, the report notes.

WASHINGTON — President Trump’s long-promised hotline for veteran complaints officially launches on Thursday, but questions remain about the long-term plans for the new resource.

The phone line — live now at 855-948-2311 — is designed to “collect, process and respond to the complaints of individual veterans in a responsive, timely and accountable manner,” according to Department of Veterans Affairs officials.

VA Secretary David Shulkin on Wednesday described the initial rollout of the line as a soft launch, with “live-answer agents” receiving and processing some of the calls. He promised that by Aug. 15, the hotline will have continuous coverage from a live operator 24 hours a day, every day of the week.

Thee VA cannot buy products or services using the AbilityOne List without first applying the “rule of two” and determining whether qualified SDVOSBs and VOSBs are available to bid.

Today’s decision of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in PDS Consultants, Inc. v. United States, No. 16-1063C (2017) resolves–in favor of veteran-owned businesses–an important question that has been lingering since Kingdomware was decided nearly one year ago.  The Court’s decision in PDS Consultants makes clear that at VA, SDVOSBs and VOSBs trump AbilityOne.

The Court’s decision involved an apparent conflict between two statutes: the Javits-Wagner-O’Day Act, or JWOD, and the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006, or VBA.

Washington, D.C.—Yesterday, Wayne Simpson, a member of the National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) and former U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) contracting official, testified before the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations to support four bills that will improve procurement practices and oversight for contracts at the VA. This comes after a Supreme Court decision, known as Kingdomware, where the court ruled unanimously that the VA was ignoring the law by avoiding contracting with Veterans through the VETS First program.

The bills - H.R. 2006 H.R. 2749, H.R. 2781 and another yet unnumbered bill - specifically direct the VA to strengthen its acquisitions process. "NVSBC supports any efforts to improve the dysfunction caused by multiple levels of contracting at the VA, as well as improvements to the VA's procurement process," said Simpson. "VA has not fully embraced the Kingdomware SCOTUS Decision. We see this legislation as necessary to turn around the significant decrease in the number of transactions with Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses and Veteran-Owned Small Businesses as documented by the VA in the Federal Procurement Data System—Next Generation."

In 2012, Veteran-owned small business Kingdomware Technologies filed a lawsuit that went to the U.S. Supreme Court. The court unanimously ruled the VA was not fully implementing VETS First and directed the department to use the "Rule of Two" for all contracts before awarding a contract to a non-Veteran supplier. VETS First is designed to give preference to qualified Veteran-owned small businesses that continue to proudly serve their country. Since then, the NVSBC has advocated for the VA to implement VETS First and improve procurement opportunities for veteran small business entrepreneurs engaged in or seeking to enter the Federal marketplace.

Washington, D.C.—Today, small business owner and Veteran Marc Goldschmitt and National Veteran Small Business Coalition (NVSBC) Board Member Staci Redmon addressed members of Congress on the pertinence of the U.S. Supreme Court's unanimous Kingdomware decision and how changes in government policies can strengthen Veteran-owned businesses and the larger small business community, and improve U.S. innovative entrepreneurship. 

The House Small Business Committee held an invitation-only roundtable to discuss how to help service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses and contractors succeed following the Supreme Court's Kingdomware decision that ruled the Veterans Administration (VA) was ignoring the law by avoiding contracting with Veterans through the VETS First program for ALL contracts.  

"The challenges of becoming Procurement Ready are common to all small businesses, whether Veteran-owned or otherwise. This is a case that addresses full compliance with the Small Business Act," said Goldschmitt, a service-disabled Veteran and CEO of Goldschmitt and Associates LLC. "The Kingdomware decision provides the blueprint to anticipate and guide government-wide policies for all agency small business scorecards." 

The Kingdomware ruling on VETS First is designed to give preference to qualified Veteran-owned small businesses that continue to proudly serve their country. "We were pleased that the Supreme Court unanimously upheld the Kingdomware decision; it was a victory for all Veteran owned businesses," said Redmon. "However, there are lessons to be learned from Kingdomware when examining how statutes, regulations and decisions help or hurt the ability for all small businesses to become more procurement ready."

In 2012, Veteran-owned small business Kingdomware Technologies filed a lawsuit that went to the U.S. Supreme Court. The court unanimously ruled the VA was not fully implementing VETS First and directed the department to use the "Rule of Two" for all contracts before awarding a contract to a non-Veteran supplier.

WASHINGTON — The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) launched a new online tool this week that will help Veterans compare various treatment options for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The PTSD Treatment Decision Aid is a free, interactive online tool that helps educate patients about effective treatment options for PTSD and encourages them to participate actively in decisions about their care.

“The health and well-being of the courageous men and women who have served their country in uniform is the VA’s highest priority,” said VA Secretary Dr. David J. Shulkin. “The PTSD Treatment Decision Aid is an important step in putting Veterans in control of their health care. By helping to bridge understanding and communication between Veterans and providers about the most effective treatment options available, we are ensuring Veterans receive the treatments that best promote their healing and recovery.”
