Service-Disabled veteran owned small (SDVOSB) businesses are awarded 3% of all federal contracts.  This is from The Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act of 1999 which guarantees up to 3% of federal government contracts and subcontracts will be set aside for veteran-owned small businesses (VOSB) and service-disability veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB).
