The Advantages of Partnering with a SDVOSB
What is a SDVOSB?
A Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) is a corporation that is owned by a service-disabled veteran, meaning a veteran who has served in the armed forces and has been discharged due to injuries sustained during their service.
SDVOSB’s are part of a federal set-side category for government agencies/contracts. This is due to the Executive Order 13360 that was issued by President Bush in October of 2004. The executive order was issued to strengthen/increase opportunities in federal contracting and subcontracting for Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Businesses.
This then was followed by Public Law 106-50 which states that federal agencies must award 3% of their contracts to SDVOSBs.
These laws were established to recognize the bravery and scarifies our soldiers have made while on deployment.
Why should you partner with a SDVOSB?
