Every year the federal government sets aside contracting dollars for businesses owned by veterans. This program allows service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses to compete for sole-source and set-aside contracts across the federal government.
A business must meet the following requirements in order to be certified as an SDVOSB:
- Be considered a small business, as defined by the size standard corresponding to any NAICS code listed in the business’s SAM profile.
- Have no less than 51% of the business owned and controlled by one or more veterans.
- For certification as a SDVOSB, have no less than 51% of the business owned and controlled by one or more veterans rated as service-disabled by the VA.
- For those veterans who are permanently and totally disabled and unable to manage the daily business operations of their business, their business may still qualify if their spouse or appointed, permanent caregiver is assisting in that management.
