Federal Procurement Assistance Laws for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Firms
Congress enacted two laws to assist small businesses owned and controlled by service
disabled veterans (SDVs): the Veterans Benefits Act of 2003 (P.L. 108-183), signed
by President Bush on December 16, 2003 and the Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small
Business Development Act of 1999 (P.L. 106-50), signed by President Clinton August
P.L. 108-183 enables SDV-owned firms to receive sole source and restricted competition
contracts for goods and services used by the U.S. government. Congress enacted this
statute after data collected from more than 60 federal departments and agencies
over a period of three years showed that more than half of them reported no procurement
dollars expended with SDV-owned companies.
