IntePros Federal is proud to be a “verified” Center for Veterans Enterprise (CVE), Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB)
There are approximately 500,000 Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses(SDVOSBs) in the United States. Government agencies, prime contractors, businesses and consumers who wish to support our veterans often encounter challenges identifying qualified Veteran Owned Businesses.
The Government is continuing its efforts to develop and promote an aggressive outreach initiative to identify small business concerns that are owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans.
The Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act of 1999 (Public Law 106-50 ) established an annual government-wide goal of not less than 3% of the total value of all prime contract and subcontract awards for participation by small business concerns owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans.
On December 16, 2003, the Veterans Benefits Act of 2003 (Public Law 108-183 ) was passed by Congress. Section 308 of the Act (Public Law 108-183) established a procurement program for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concerns (SDVOSBC). This procurement program provides that federal contracting officers may restrict competition to SDVOSBCs and award a sole source or set-aside contract where certain criteria are met.
The Small Business Administration has issued an interim final rule, establishing a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concern Program. This program establishes the criteria to be used in federal contracting to determine service-disabled veteran status; business ownership and control requirements; guidelines for establishing sole source and set-aside procurement opportunities; and protest and appeal procedures for SDVOSBC procurements.
