The post provides an update on VA’s FY 2019 small business and socioeconomic accomplishments through March 31, 2019.
It should be noted, VA raised its FY 2019 Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB) Goals for FY 2019. Sometime between March 5, 2019, and April 9, 2019, VA posted a single-page, unsigned and undated document indicating its FY 2019 Goals. The SDVOSB and VOSB goals were raised from 10% and 12%, respectively, to 15% and 17%, respectively. This represents the first increase in goals for SDVOSBs and VOSBs in ten fiscal years.
VA describes the new goals as ‘aggressive’ but it should be noted VA continues to set goals below its accomplishments with SDVOBs and VOSBs. That’s not ‘aggressive’—that’s just being safe. Click here to see related post.
