Doing business with a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB):
In 1999, PL 106-50 set the goal of awarding 3% of all Federal contracts to SDVOSBs. Studies revealed only 0.13% of contracts went to SDVOSBs in2002. The DoD is taking part in “Operation Fast Break”, an initiative to achieve goals set forth in PLs 106-50 & 108-183 ahead of schedule!
On October 21, 2004, the President signed an Executive Order directing heads of agencies to significantly increase the Federal contracting and subcontracting of SDVOSBs.
What this means to you as a potential customer:
Because CMA is a SDVOSB, the government can sole source us for non-manufacturing contracts. The savings to the Government can be significant because there are no pass-through rates!
As a result, CMA can meet your requirements at the lowest possible price.
