Contents Characteristics of veterans and service-disabled veterans and their potential effect on the supply of SDVOSBs -- Interview approach and results -- Summary of findings and recommendations
Summary The report investigates the barriers that service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSBs) may face when attempting to contract with the federal government and the Department of Defense. The government and DoD goals are to award 3 percent of prime-contract dollars to SDVOSBs but current contracting falls below that level. The authors assess the characteristics of service-disabled veterans that support successful business ownership and identify possible barriers to meeting the 3 percent goals
