The Subcommittees will examine challenges facing small businesses owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans seeking federal contracts using both the Small Business Administration and Department of Veterans Affairs contracting programs. Specifically, the Subcommittees will hear testimony regarding the statutory, regulatory and interpretive differences in the two programs and how these differences affect veterans. Additionally, the Subcommittees will look at how effectively the programs operate, and explore ways to improve the efficiencies of the programs.
