Advantages of Registering a VOSB or SDVOSB

In 2003 congress passed the Veterans Benefits Act to jumpstart supplier networks across the nation, and give Veteran Owned Small Businesses (VOSBs) the room they need to thrive amongst the larger corporations in their field.

Or in franker terms, Certified Veterans have earned themselves the right to enjoy exclusive contracting opportunities which are restricted from the rest of their competition.

For reference: In 2018, the federal government put $560 billion into annual contract spending alone. 3% of those contracts were legally reserved for VOSBs, with 23% more available for Small Businesses at a total of 26%.

For reference: When you do the math, that translates to between $145 and $173 billion in contract work last year — and all that Qualified Businesses need to do to take part in these lucrative contracts is get registered as a VOSB.

  • Source Law – Sole Source states the federal government must set aside a percentage of their contracts for certified small and veteran owned businesses.
  • Special Preference – VOSBs also receive preferential consideration when vying for open-bid contracts that are available to the rest of the Federal marketplace.
  • Options – VOSBs are allowed to subcontract on any of the jobs awarded to them. That way a veteran’s small business size won’t cause them to miss out on larger prospects.
  • Private Sector Opportunities – Becoming VOSB certified doesn’t just make organizations eligible for federal benefits, it also opens them to a range of exclusive contracting opportunities from the private sector.

DIY – VOSB Self Certification

Veterans who want to take the time to file for themselves by learning the ins and outs of the application process may DIY at SBA.gov.

But keep in mind, the federal government requires a lot of information to certify your business, and it all needs to be submitted in the right way.

If registration is not completed perfectly the first time around, veterans might find themselves going through the entire lengthy process again under harsher guidelines. Even worse, if veterans do manage to get approved despite some accidental filing mistakes, those errors can go on to create payment problems and limit their ability to win future contracts.

Challenges of VOSB Self Certification

  • Dozens of Registration Hours – Registering veteran and small business status with the federal government is an involving process that takes dedicated time, patience, and close attention-to-detail.
  • DIY Registration – The self-registration process can be completed by those who learn how to navigate its hurdles and spend the clerical hours completing and answering the required questions.
