One of the results is the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA)'s 21 Gun Salute initiative. Its official purpose is to help provide more opportunities in federal contracting for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSBs) with the goal of allocating at least 3 percent, or $143 million, in GSA contract dollars to service-disabled veteran businesses in 2008. Per GSA # 10459 (March 3, 2008)
"GSA's local Small Business Utilization offices are available to assist service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses throughout the contracting process. Veteran business owners interested in working with GSA should contact the Small Business Utilization office for assistance."Attorneys advising small businesses in a variety of capacities, or who are in small businesses themselves, might wish to check this out further.
