Service-Disabled and Veteran-Owned Small Business Certification


Office of Entrepreneurial Development

The SDVOSB (Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business) program provides small businesses owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans increased opportunities to compete for and win federal contracts. The Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) program has a federal government-wide goal of awarding at least 3 percent of prime and subcontracting dollars to Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses each year. Large prime contractors must also establish a subcontracting goal for Veteran-Owned Small Businesses in their Subcontracting Plans. These subcontracting goals are reviewed at time of proposal by both the contracting officer and SBA prior to the award of a contract.
