Offit Kurman Attorney Recognized in Washington Business Journal for Representing Loch Harbour

VA awards new veteran-owned small business program management contract — spurring another lawsuit

Spurred by a protest in a federal court, the Department of Veteran Affairs picked a new company to manage the process of getting veteran-owned small businesses verified. The result? Another lawsuit from the prior winner that saw its contract terminated.

It’s the latest in something of a contracting debacle for the department, which has left the management of its Center for Veterans Enterprise in a state of flux for more than a year.

The VA decided to award to the $39.9 million contract to manage its Center for Veterans Enterprise to Loch Harbour Group Inc. of Alexandria. The bulk of that work is for processing contractor applications to be verified as veteran-owned, which in turn allows them to be able to compete for work set aside by the VA. That contract was originally awarded to Monterey Consultants Inc. of Dayton, Ohio, but terminated in November when the VA opted to take corrective action in response to a protest filed by Loch Harbour in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
