Certified Facility Solutions is proud to announce that it has earned the exclusive
designation as a Certified Veteran’s Business Enterprise™ (VBE) from the National
Veteran Owned Business Association. To be eligible for the designation as NaVOBA Certified VBE™, the
applicant firm must be at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by one or more U.S. military
veterans. At its core certification is a protection for both veteran-owned businesses as well as the
corporations and organizations that do business with them.
People can easily say ‘I’m a veteran-owned business’ when they really aren’t,” NaVOBA President
Matthew Pavelek said. “Corporations will not risk the accuracy of their Supplier Diversity spending
goals by recording spend on contracts with firms that
say they are owned by veterans if they aren’t
absolutely certain of the ownership, operation and control of that firm. Working with a third-party
nonprofit organization like NaVOBA and its VBE certification program provides that certainty.”
