Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Development

Article 17-B of the New York State Executive Law provides for more meaningful participation in public procurement by certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Businesses (“SDVOBs”), thereby further integrating such businesses into New York State’s economy. NYSOFA recognizes the need to promote the employment of service-disabled veterans and to ensure that certified SDVOBs have opportunities for maximum feasible participation in the performance of NYSOFA’s contracts. 

In recognition of the service and sacrifices made by service-disabled veterans and in recognition of their economic activity in doing business in New York State, NYSOFA uses SDVOBs and strongly encourages and expects Bidders/Contractors to consider SDVOBs in the fulfillment of contract requirements. Such participation may be as subcontractors or suppliers, as protégés, or in other partnering or supporting roles.
