News - Training for Veteran small business owners to compete for VA set-aside procurements. VA offers free training to help VOSBs and SDVOBs.

Veteran Services ensures that job and training services are offered to veterans on a priority basis.

Local Veteran Employment Representatives (LVERs) and Disabled Veterans Outreach Program representatives (DVOPs) provide these services to veterans in New Mexico.
