Sticking with GoVets

For any prime contractor working with the State of New York, meeting Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business (SDVOB) goals can often seem a daunting task. This burden might lead some contractors to explore waivers from the supplier diversity offices due to their inability to satisfy the SDVOB requirements. In this blog post, we delve into the top 10 reasons why prime contractors find themselves in this situation. We also present an innovative solution that negates the need for waivers – partnering with GoVets, a leading NYS SDVOB.  For more information, check out our dedicated New York State Prime Contractor Page to help Primes make the right decision.

Section 1: Why Do Prime Contractors Seek Waivers?

  1. Insufficient SDVOB Availability: Prime contractors may struggle to find sufficient SDVOBs within their supply chain, leading to waiver requests. SDVOB availability can vary based on the industry or specific products and services required.
  2. Competitive Pricing: Not all SDVOBs can offer competitive pricing, pushing prime contractors to look elsewhere to maintain project budget constraints, leading to non-fulfillment of their SDVOB goals.
  3. Capacity Limitations: Smaller SDVOBs may lack the capacity to handle large orders or high-volume projects, prompting prime contractors to resort to waivers.
  4. Geographical Barriers: Geographic location can sometimes pose a challenge, especially if local SDVOBs do not offer the needed goods or services.
  5. Quality Concerns: If SDVOBs cannot meet the required quality standards, prime contractors may apply for waivers to avoid compromising on quality.
  6. Limited Product Range: Prime contractors might face difficulties finding SDVOBs that offer the wide range of products they need, forcing them to work with non-SDVOBs.
  7. Logistics and Delivery Timelines: Timely delivery is critical for any project. Some SDVOBs may struggle to meet tight delivery timelines, leading to prime contractors seeking waivers.
  8. Payment Terms: Rigid payment terms from some SDVOBs may not align with the financial dynamics of prime contractors, necessitating waivers.
  9. Supplier Management Issues: Managing multiple SDVOBs to meet their diversity goals can be a daunting task for prime contractors.
  10. Regulatory Complexities: Complying with all the SDVOB regulations may appear complicated and confusing to some prime contractors, pushing them towards waivers.
