Certification Service for Small Businesses owned by Retired American Military Veterans

Did you know that last year the U.S. Federal purchased $XX.XX Billion in goods and services from 8,900 federally certified Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB)? The objective of the SDVOSB Procurement Program is to provide federal government procuring agencies the authority to set acquisitions aside for exclusive competition among service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns, as well as the authority to make sole source awards to these if certain conditions and requirements are met. (See Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 13 C.F.R. § 125.8-125.10).

Certified SDVOSB firms qualify for:

  1. Sole source contracting opportunities:
    1. Sole Source Contracts
      1. The SBA states that a Contracting Officer (CO) may award a sole source contract if:
        1. The requirement is not exempted from SDVO contracting and cannot be set-aside.
        2. The CO does not have a reasonable expectation that at least two responsible SDVO SBCs will submit offers.
        3. The anticipated award price of the contract, including options, will not exceed:
          1. $6.5M for manufacturing requirements
          2. $4.0M for all other requirements.
        4. Award can be made at a fair market price.
  2. Simplified Acquisition Threshold:
    If the requirement is at or below the simplified acquisition threshold, the Contracting Officer may set-aside the requirement for consideration among SDVOSBs using simplified acquisition procedures or may award a sole source contract to a SDVOSB. A sole-source award is only permissible where there is only one Service Disabled Small Business Concern that performs the contract in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulations § 19.406 (a)(3).

Per the SBA, to become approved as an eligible SDVOSB, applicant firms must first meet multiple and specific terms and conditions. The SDVOSB Certification is laborious and paper intensive! Fortunately, Rafael Marrero & Company takes the headache out of the SDVOSB application process!
