  3. Increase the integrity of certifications of status as a small business;
  4. Reducing paperwork and administrative burdens in accessing business development and entrepreneurship opportunities;
  5. Increasing and improving training and counseling services; and
  6. Making other improvements to support veteran's business development by the Federal government.
