Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) Certification

Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concerns (SDVOSBC)

About Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concerns (SDVOSB)

In 2010 the federal government spent $8.7 Billion dollars with SDVOSB Certified firms. This program was initially established with the Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act of 1999 establishing an annual federal spending goal of 3% for veteran owned businesses.

An additional modification took place in 2003 with the Veterans Benefits Act, which established a procurement program for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concerns (SDVOSB). This procurement program provides that government contracting officers may restrict competition to SDVOSB Certified firms and award a sole source or set-aside contract.
