Westchester County last month passed legislation to help Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Businesses (SDVOB) compete and win more government contracts aross county departments. Westchester County is a county based in the state of New York and is the second most populous county on the mainland of New York, according to wikipedia. Currently the county supports veteran businesses but many believe this will aid in expanding its reach.
There are approximately “15 certified SDVOB’s operating in Westchester County with nearly 450 such businesses statewide.” according to Hudson Valley News Network.
To be clear this is not a government quota nor will there be set asides give for SDVOBs but there will be reports created to track the participation of said operations with the goal of increasing government spend with them. The 450 identified SDVOBs “provide goods and services across a broad spectrum of industries like construction/demolition, IT services, office furniture distribution, heavy equipment sales, staffing services, and pest control and janitorial services.”
