New Bill Would Boost Set Aside for Disabled Veteran Contractors

On September 6, 2007, Sen. John Pappageorge (R. Troy) introduced S.B. 751, which would amend the Management and Budget Act to increase the goal for contract set asides for disabled veterans.

Under the current Act, it is the goal of the Department of Management and Budget (DMB) to award each year at least 3% of its total expenditures for construction, goods, and services to qualified disabled veterans. S.B. 751 would boost that that minimum goal to 5%.
