Sanctions can be imposed on various contractors, and in some cases, specific individuals (principals in the business), including prohibiting contractors from doing business with the State for specified periods of time under certain circumstances. Sanctions will result particularly in cases where Small Business (SB), Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) and/or Nonprofit Veteran Service Agency (NVSA) certification was fraudulently obtained and/or misused in a State bid or contracting situation.
