SCOTUS Ruling Shows Promising Future for SDVOSB’s

On June 16 the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) established its ruling on Kingdomware vs. The United States, which is set to drive more contractor teaming with veteran-owned small businesses in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

From the SCOTUS blog “The issue before the Court was whether a federal law which provides that, as long as certain conditions are met, the Department of Veterans Affairs “shall award” contracts to small businesses owned by veterans applies every time the department awards contracts. The federal government had argued that the rule left some room for discretion, but today the Court rejected that argument.  “Shall,” the Court emphasized, was meant as “a command.”

The implications of this ruling will be potentially widespread across government institutions if history repeats itself. Two big noteworthy changes resulting from this ruling are that:

  1. First, the VA must now give preference to service disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSBs) and veteran-owned small businesses (VOSBs) on purchases made through GSA Schedules.
  2. Second, the VA must give preference to veteran-owned businesses on all its acquisitions, whether or not the VA has met its annual veteran contracting goals.

With this ruling, small, service-disabled, veteran-owned businesses will be sought after as potential partners for larger teaming efforts. This new door to opportunity will inevitably result in a range of potential partners from qualified and well-intentioned through opportunistic, but the right kind of change is happening and as a veteran-owned business, we at Three Wire are optimistic about this trajectory.

The VA has led the way in enabling veterans to gain access to economic opportunity by leveraging the federal procurement system and expanding participation of procurement-ready small businesses. As a SDVOSB on GSA IT70, SEWP V, and CIOCS, and a leading technology and innovation partner, we are excited about what this means for economic opportunities for those veterans who are already in the marketplace, and the inspiration we hope it provides to those who have been waiting to dip their toe into the waters.

VetAdvisor EVP to Present at 2016 World EAP Conference

Data-Based Presentation on Veteran-Centric Life Success Programs

Falls Church, VA – Jennifer Roseman, Three Wire Systems’ Executive Vice President of VetAdvisor Services, has been selected to present at the Employee Assistance Professionals Association’s 2016 World EAP Conference in Chicago, IL. Roseman’s presentation, “What EAP Services do Veterans Want? Best Practices and Lessons Learned” will use data collected by VetAdvisor over a two-year period.

“I’m honored that my presentation was among those selected for this year’s World EAP Conference,” Roseman states. “The data collected using our Veteran Relationship Management tool is incredibly illuminating and I look forward to discussing the ways it can help organizations identify veteran life success program needs and determine veteran coaching best practices and ROI measurement.”

In November 2013, VetAdvisor began offering veteran-centric life success coaching services to a Fortune 500 company. A cohort of 1,999 veterans registered for and received VetAdvisor finance, career, wellness, behavioral health, and navigational advocacy coaching. All coach/veteran interactions were tracked, providing a wealth of data on duration, quality, and content of all interactions, as well as on how veterans assess their quality of life across personal, interpersonal, and operational (logistical) categories.

Utilizing data collected between November 2013 and December 2015, Roseman’s session will present lessons learned and strategies for achieving veteran engagement in coaching services. EAPA’s 2016 World EAP Conference will be held Monday, October 31 – Thursday, November 3, 2016 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. For more information, visit www.eapassn.org.
