VA to direct more money to service-disabled vets

Service-disabled veterans may have more money flowing their way in fiscal 2013.

The Veterans Affairs Department’s Technology Acquisition Center (TAC) will direct half of its total 2013 contract awards to service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSBs), GovWin reported Aug. 30.

TAC spends a large portion of VA's $2.5 billion in contracts. TAC has already awarded roughly 45 percent of its contracts to SDVOSBs in fiscal 2012.
