Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business
4D is proud to be an SBA certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). An SDVOSB is a small business that is majority-owned by a service-disabled veteran and includes one or more service-disabled veterans on the management team. The federal government has a goal of awarding at least 3% of all federal contract dollars to service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses each year.
Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned certification allows 4D to participate in special contract types, which include competitive set-aside contracts for SDVOSBs, sole-source contracts up to $4 million ($6.5 million for manufacturing requirements), or subcontracts awarded by large prime contractors to meet their SDVOSB and small-business subcontracting goals.
When contracts are worth less than $150,000, they are automatically set aside for small businesses. If possible, contracting officers can choose to set the contract aside specifically for businesses in socio-economic programs like the disabled veterans’ business program. For set-aside contracts worth $150,000 or more, contracting officers are required to consider socio-economic programs first.
