We were very pleased to receive notice from the VA that we have been verified under their comprehensive vetting process to be a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business. This highly desirable certification is the result of the VA’s efforts to ensure the legitimacy of SDVOSB status for all businesses that claim to be owned and operated by service-disabled veterans. We appreciate the VA’s emphasis on both the comprehensiveness of their vetting combined with the guidance they provide to facilitate a timely decision. Validating small business socio-economic status helps to make competition in the Federal market more transparent and fair. We at Alaris certainly endorse that goal.
