WHAT IS A
SERVICE DISABLED VETERAN OWNED SMALL BUSINESS?
A Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) is defined by
the SDVOSB Contracting Program for federal agencies as:
- A business considered small by Small Business
Administration size standards.
- A business owned and controlled by one or
more service-disabled veterans (0-100% rating).
WHEN WAS THE
SDVOSB PROGRAM ESTABLISED?
President George W. Bush issued Executive Order 13360 on Oct. 20, 2004,
outlining the responsibilities of Federal agencies to provide Federal
contracting and subcontracting opportunities to SDVOSBs. Public Law 106-50 established a contracting
goal for Federal agencies to award 3% of prime contracts to SDVOSBs. Large
Prime contractors have SDVOSB subcontracting goals.
WHAT ARE SDVOSB
SET ASIDE SOLICITATIONS?
Funds can be set aside for SDVOSBs if the contracting officer has a
reasonable expectation that two or more qualified SDVOSBs will submit offers,
and the contract will be awarded at a fair market price.
- There is no dollar limit on SDVOSB
- If only one offer is received, the
contracting officer may make an award at a fair market price.
If the contracting officer receives no acceptable offers from SDVOSBs,
the set-aside shall be withdrawn, and the requirements, if still valid, set
aside for other small business programs.
WHAT ARE SDVOSB
SOLE SOURCE AWARDS?
Sole-source contracts can be awarded if the contracting officer
determines that a qualified SDVOSB is available to perform the contract, and
the anticipated award value of the proposed contract, including options, will
- $5 million for a requirement within North
American Industry Classification System (NAICS) for manufacturing, or
- $3 million for a requirement within all other
This provides a great benefit to the government when the time frame for
awarding a contract to meet customer requirements is extremely shortened.
WHAT ARE THE
FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR SDVOSB CERTIFICATION?
There is no Federal SDVOSB certification program. The service disabled
veteran business owner self represents his status and small business status in
contract representations and certifications.
However, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has a formal process for
certifying that a small business meets all of the requirements under the
service disabled veteran owned small business program. ITC received its VA
certification in 2007.
WHAT ARE THE
LIMITATIONS ON SUBCONTRACTORS BY PRIME SDVOSBs?
- 50% of direct labor services
- 50% of cost of manufacturing
- 15% of labor costs for General construction
- 25% of labor costs for Special Trade
