Bruce, more and more companies, the likes of Lockheed Martin, and Merck are looking for veteran owned business's. It is a procurment now for them to do business with us.
Lucent Technologies just landed the Dept of the Army's IMOD contract. I contacted the manager of this project for Lucent, and introduced myself as a SDVOB. He has told me, that parts of this IMOD contract must be done by different dis-advantaged business's. Some are 8A certified, some women-owned and some percentage to veteran and SDVOB.
This IMOD is a global contract, with services needed everywhere including the states. In fact, I think california is one of the starting points.
Look at this one one in Georgia: http://www2.fbo.gov/spg/VA/AtlVAMC/VAMCCO80220/247%2D0294%2D06/SynopsisR.html
strictly for SDVOB.
Now the problem is, for me...being big enough to do this, hense the need for teaming up.
Here is one in my neck of the woods: http://www.fbo.gov/spg/VA/BuVAMC529/BuVAMC529/2440601476/SynopsisP.html
There is quite alot out there.
If anyone is interested in the guys name from Lucent, send me an email.
I'll post more info for the vets, if you guys want..
