Our Small-Business Set Aside Programs
NTS participates in both Veteran-owned and service-disabled small business set-aside programs.
- VOSB (Veteran Owned)
- The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) promotes the maximum utilization of Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) as practicable. Under the Veterans First program, VA contract specialists conduct market research in an effort to seek out VOSB firms to meet their needs. VA is the only agency which sets a goal and which tracks participation of VOSBs.
- SDVOSB (Service Disabled)
- Consistent with Public Law 109-461, awarding contracts to Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) firms is the highest priority within the Small Business programs for VA. Consistent with the mandate and the mission of VA, participation of SDVOSBs in VA Acquisition programs is strongly encouraged. OSDBU is the advocate that monitors the Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB) Program, with a special emphasis on SDVOSBs.
