SDVOSB

Blake Willson Group, LLC is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), as verified by Department of Veterans Affairs which provides a competitive advantage in both sole sourcing and setting aside opportunities:

SDVOSB Set-Asides:

Under FAR 19.1405, federal government Contracting Officers shall consider SDVOSB set-asides when there is a reasonable expectation that

  • (1) Offers will be received from two or more service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns; and
  • (2) Award will be made at a fair market price.

If the contracting officer receives only one acceptable offer from a service-disabled veteran-owned small business concern in response to a set-aside, the contracting officer should make an award to that concern. If the contracting officer receives no acceptable offers from service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns, the service-disabled veteran-owned set-aside shall be withdrawn and the requirement, if still valid, set aside for small business concerns, as appropriate.

Sole Source under SDVOSB:

Under FAR Part 19.1406 (a) A contracting officer shall consider a contract award to a SDVOSB concern on a sole source basis (see 6.302-5(b)(6)), before considering small business set-asides (see 19.203 and subpart 19.5) provided none of the exclusions of 19.1404 apply and—

  • (1) The contracting officer does not have a reasonable expectation that offers would be received from two or more service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns;
  • (2) The anticipated award price of the contract, including options, will not exceed- (i) $7 million for a requirement within the NAICS codes for manufacturing; or (ii) $4 million for a requirement within any other NAICS code;
  • (3) The requirement is not currently being performed by an 8(a) participant under the provisions of subpart 19.8 or has been accepted as a requirement by SBA under subpart 19.8;
  • (4) The service-disabled veteran-owned small business concern has been determined to be a responsible contractor with respect to performance; and
  • (5) Award can be made at a fair and reasonable price.
  • (b) The SBA has the right to appeal the contracting officer’s decision not to make a service-disabled veteran-owned small business sole source award.
