Legal Meets Practical: Accessible Solutions

VetBiz Post-Review Findings

For those who have gone all the way through the VetBiz process, it’s frustrating and concerning to review a Post-Review Findings Notice (“PRF Notice”), which is a notice advising the business owner that certain eligibility issues preventing verification have been uncovered during the VetBiz process. The business owner has two options: 1) withdraw the application and re-apply when the business is eligible; or 2) elect to participate in the “Post-Review Findings Program, which is where the owner makes such election within two days, and then provides a response (which can include correcting corporate documents or providing other evidence) within five days.

Some PRF Notices are simple to address. There might be a point of clarification or information that was not clearly presented during the initial process. Maybe the PRF Notice flags only a small fix to the operating agreement. In that event, it might not be necessary to obtain help, but only to follow the guidance set forth in the PRF Notice.

Other PRF Notices do not present simple fixes. They might require substantive changes to corporate documents, or a require a nuanced understanding of the regulations and an ability to apply them to the (clearly communicated) specific facts of a business. In these instances, I’m happy to assist veteran-owned businesses over that last hurdle. I’ll assess the situation, preparing the response and supporting documentation (including revised corporate documents) in order to ensure you’re in the best possible position to receive that approval letter.

If you’ve received a PRF Notice, this means you’ve already put in the work required of a VetBiz application. Don’t let it go to waste! Contact me at [email protected] or (703) 552-3220 if you’d like to discuss this last stage of the VetBiz verification process.
