Inocula is a “Value” and “Values” Business
Inocula’s first priority is to deliver value to our clients through understanding of business need, expertise and hard work. We compete to win your business based upon our proven capability to help you achieve your desired business outcomes. And we plan for it to be a long-term relationship.
Much of our expertise and roll-up-your-sleeves approach was first learned in the military. As did our values of maintaining mission focus, meeting our commitments, and doing so while minimizing risk.
We are proud of our military service and will gladly tell stories about it as long as the beer is flowing. We are also thankful to citizens that have recognized the sacrifice of Veterans and have chosen to set-aside a portion of their business service needs to Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses. Our goal is to win your business based upon our ability to deliver on your needs.
Contracting officers may set aside acquisitions for SDVOSBs “if the contracting officer has a reasonable expectation that not less than two small business concerns owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans will submit offers and that the award can be made at a fair market price.” Contracting officers may award a sole source contract to an SDVOSB if does not have a reasonable expectation that two or more qualified SDVOSBs will submit offers at a fair market price, and the contract does not exceed $5,500,000 for manufacturing or $3,000,000 for all other industries.
The Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-461) provides the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) with unique authority for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB) set-aside and sole source contracts.
This procurement authority, and its subsequent implementation, is a logical extension of VA’s mission to care for our Nation’s Veterans. VA refers to this program as the Veterans First Contracting Program.
The Vets First Verification Program affords verified firms owned and controlled by Veterans and Service-disabled Veterans the opportunity to compete for VA set asides. During Verification, the Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) verifies SDVOSBs/VOSBs according to the tenets found in Title 38 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 74 that address Veteran eligibility, ownership, and control.
