Boosting Rates of American Veteran Employment Act or the BRAVE Act

(Sec. 2) Authorizes the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), in awarding a contract or task order for the procurement of goods or services, to give preference to offerors based on the percentage of the offeror's full-time employees who are veterans.

Requires the debarment from contracting with the VA for not less than five years of any offeror determined to have willfully and intentionally misrepresented the veteran status of its employees.
