As a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), RiVidium makes it a point to hire veterans first in all contractual engagements pursued. We have made a commitment to support our veterans through action and deeds and we continue to lead the way in supporting our veterans.

“On June 20, 2007, Public Law 109-461 went into effect, which authorized a unique “Veterans First” approach specific to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) contracting. The legislation:

  1. Redefines priorities for contracting preferences within the VA, placing Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSBs) and Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (VOSBs) first and second, respectively, in satisfying the VA’s acquisition requirements.
  2. Allows sole source contracts over the Simplified Acquisition Threshold up to $5,000,000 (including options)
  3. Implements restricted competition via Set-Aside Procedures for each category of SDVOSBs and VOSBs.
  4. Allows additional credit evaluation factors for SDVOSB or VOSB status.
  5. Authorizes large VA prime contractors to obtain subcontracting credit for SDVOSBs and VOSBs only when they subcontract with verified firms in VIP.

RiVidium is a verified SDVOSB, having been verified through the VA Center for Veterans Enterprise (CVE). You can find RiVidium’s verification status here: "RiVidium's Verification" in the VetBiz verified business database (Vendor Information Pages). The VetBiz database is the only federally controlled database in which a legal verification process is used to determine service disabled or veteran status of a small business. RiVidium is eligible to be awarded VA contracts under the Veterans First Contracting Program.
