Welcome to the Indiana Department of Veterans' Affairs
Since its establishment in 1945, the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs (IDVA) has remained focused on aiding and assisting "Hoosier" veterans, and qualified family members or survivors, who are eligible for benefits or advantages provided by Indiana and the U.S. government.
Governor Mike Pence signed SEA 564 on April 25, 2013, expanding veteran-owned small business opportunities in Indiana. The law is effective July 1, 2013.
SEA 564 codifies Governor Pence’s Executive Order 13-04, requiring the Indiana Department of Administration (IDOA) to procure at least 3 percent of state contracts with veteran-owned small businesses (VOSBs). It also requires IDOA to adopt rules, develop policies and set forth guidelines regarding contracting opportunities for VOSBs. IDOA must report annually the percentage of state contracts with Hoosier VOSBs. Finally, SEA 564 allows the Indiana Economic Development Corporation to assist in various aspects of the VOSB initiative, including maintaining a list of Indiana VOSBs, assisting VOSBs with bidding procedures and compliance, and simplifying specifications and contract terms to increase opportunities for VOSB participation.
Future VOSB updates and the new procedure for registering will be posted to this website when IDOA makes it available.
