About Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concerns (SDVOSBC)
Federal Spending 2011
Number of Firms 2011
Federal Revenue per Firm
In 2010 the federal government spent $8.7 Billion dollars with SDVOSBC Certified firms. This program was initially established with the Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act of 1999 establishing an annual federal spending goal of 3% for veteran owned businesses. An additional modification took place in 2003 with the Veterans Benefits Act which established a procurement program for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concerns (SDVOSBC). This procurement program provides that government contracting officers may restrict competition to SDVOSBC Certified firms and award a sole source or set-aside contract.
