Missouri Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (SDVE) Information

Pursuant to section 34.074, RSMo, and 1 CSR 40-1.050, the Division of Purchasing has a goal of awarding three (3) percent of all contracts for the performance of any job or service to qualified service-disabled veteran business enterprises (SDVEs).

In addition, a three (3) bonus point preference shall be granted to a bidder/offeror who meets the requirements of a SDVE on bids/proposals for the performance of any job or service, except for a no cost contract and any other exception provided for (1 CSR 40-1.050) and as approved by the Director of the Division of Purchasing. The three (3) percent goal can be met, and the bonus points obtained, by a qualified SDVE vendor in non-weighted and weighted criteria procurements and/or through the use of qualified subcontractors or suppliers in weighted criteria procurements that provide at least three (3) percent of the total contract value.

The Office of Administration maintains the Missouri SDVE database which lists vendors that have previously provided the required documentation, indicating their enrollment and continuous participation as a Certified Missouri Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (SDVE). This database provides each vendor’s name, e-mail address, website (if available), telephone number, commodities/services that they provide, Veteran's name, and expiration month/year of SDVE certification. (Note: A vendor will be removed from the database if the vendor does not renew their certification.)
