SDVOSB Programs

What many don’t know is that the federal government currently runs not one but two service-disabled veteran-owned small business programs. Both the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Department of Veterans Affairs have programs that recognize and set aside work for SDVOSBs. Though the programs are similar, and becoming more so all the time, important differences remain, including that only the VA has to set aside work for SDVOSB concerns when it believes that it will receive reasonable offers from at least two capable SDVOSBs (the “Rule of Two”) and that the VA runs the only government program that recognizes VOSBs 
 

We can assist SDVOSB/VOSB and potential SDVOSB/VOSB businesses with all aspects that come with assessing whether they can participate in these programs, including: 
 

  • Determining and ensuring eligibility through compliance with ownership and control requirements 

  • Applying for verification from the VA 

  • Reviewing and preparing documents showing veteran control 

  • Assistance in responding to requests for additional information 
     

Once established as an SDVOSB, we can continue to help in various ways:  
 

  • Ensure compliance with SDVOSB rules and regulations 

  • Responding to unannounced site visits 

  • Preparing or intervening in Rule of Two protests 

  • Preparing and defending against SDVOSB/VOSB status protests and appeals
