Introduction to the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Program
The Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) Federal Government Contracting Certification Program helps SDVOSB’s compete in the federal marketplace. Under the SDVOSB program, the federal government limits competition for certain contracts to SDVOSB-certified businesses in order to help provide a level playing field for SDVOSB’s. The federal government’s goal is to award at least three percent of all federal contracting dollars spent stateside to SDVOSB certified firms each year. This webinar, presented jointly by SBA’s West Virginia, Delaware and Maine Offices, details the SDVOSB Program’s eligibility criteria, benefits and application process.
