Dean Ledbetter • Not enough qualified SDVOSB's..hmmm..that's the argument, but is it true? I get the "gut" feeling that the group here does not think so. Are they
wrong? They complain about not being considered because they lack certain
"past performance" read "experience" with the specific type of work being
requested or they lack bondng capacity for construction jobs, or they lack
financing for the big contracts, problems ad infinitm.
There are ways around those constraints, but they are nonetheless real, and
if the SDVOSB does not know the "work around" then the constraint becomes
the reason for lack of award.
There are "war Stories" posted here in sufficient numbers and detail that
to lead one to believe that there is an opportunity here to achieve a
higher number than 3%.
