SBA Determines Client is an Eligible SDVOSB
A client's award of a SDVOSB set-aside contract was the subject of a recent protest to SBA. The protest alleged that the joint venture client was actually one in which the small business partner was controlled by the other partner, a large business. Based on our defense, SBA concluded that the joint venture was, in fact, owned and controlled by a service-disabled veteran, and was therefore an eligible SDVOSB for the contract award. SBA's decision was issued on May 13, 2020.
