Janz Corporation Approved for Continued Eligibility in the Veterans First Contracting Program
Janz’s application for renewal as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) has been approved for an additional two years. The Janz Corporation will remain eligible to participate in Veterans First Contracting Program opportunities with VA as a verified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).
CVE is a program office in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU). CVE’s primary role is to provide verification to Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (VOSB) and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB) seeking to do business with VA.
The objective of CVE is to consistently deliver accurate and timely verifications through integrated technology, service and process platforms. The name more accurately identifies to the public the services that CVE provides. CVE evaluates and verifies the ownership and control of SDVOSBs and VOSBs in accordance with 38 CFR Part 74. CVE is the only organization within the Federal government with an independent verification process to validate Veteran status and other eligibility criterion for VOSBs and SDVOSBs prior to participation in the procurement system. VA does this under the authority of the Veterans First Contracting program. Firms approved as eligible for verified VOSB or SDVOSB status are registered in CVE’s Vendor Information Pages (VIP) database, which is used for VA contract set-asides. CVE enables VOSBs to expand their opportunities within the Federal marketplace and enables VA to achieve its small business and socioeconomic procurement goals.
As a pioneer in the emergency care arena, Philips has demonstrated a history of producing innovative and life-saving technology that today has helped save many lives around the world.
In this image captured today by Janz Corporation’s Linda Schoo, VP of Business Development, original Heartstream co-founder John Harris speaks about the development of the Heartstream Forerunner AED. As the precursor to the Philips HeartStart line of AEDs, John’s experience, ingenuity and determination – along with that of his co-founders – helped shape the out-of-hospital emergency medical care that we receive today.
Having secured FDA approval for the Heartstream Forerunner in 1996, this year marks the 20<sup>th</sup> anniversary of the introduction of AED technology to the community outside of hospitals and EMS systems.
Robert Davis of USA TODAY wrote an article in 2003 detailing the creation of the Heartstream Forerunner: http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/money/industries/technology/2003-07-30-inventors_x.htm
