What is a SDVOSB and how can a Partnership Benefit your Company?

January 1, 2023

A SDVOSB is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), meaning the company is owned by a person who served in the Active Military, Naval, or Air Service and whose disability was incurred or aggravated in the line of duty in the Active Military, Naval, or Air Service. SDVOSB businesses must also satisfy the Small Business Association’s (SBA) size standards and be approved through the VA’s Vets First Verification program (VetCert).

What is it Used for?

The U.S. Government hires Contracting Officers to work with contractors. Contracting Officers can make proposals, award, negotiate, change, operate, and end contracts for the U.S. Government.

Since the Government prefers to contract with small businesses whenever possible, contracting officials use set-asides and sole sourcing to help the Government agencies meet their small business contracting goals. Contractors are determined by the Small Business Association’s (SBA) size standards. Which usually requires a business to have a maximum number of employees or maximum revenue. Another important thing to note is that when contracts are worth at or below $250,000, they are automatically set aside for small businesses. This information can be found on SBA’s website.

The SDVOSB platform was implemented by The Department of Defense (DoD) as an outreach effort to identify these businesses and allow them to participate in sole source or set aside contracts. This certification allows businesses access to special asides and sole source contracts through the DoD and Veteran Affairs (VA).

Why work with an SDVOSB?

Since the U.S. Government is actively trying to do business with small businesses utilizing the SDVOSB set-aside opportunities, manufacturers with a SDVOSB distributor can utilize the relationship to compete for bids and other opportunities. Working with an SDVOSB with government contracts also gives businesses access to the Federal Marketplace and unique financial opportunities that are only available to SDVOSBs.
