The NVSBC has partnered with Veratics, an SDVOSB out of Indian Harbour Beach, Florida, to create an electronic ordering marketplace for government agencies and commercial enterprises to buy products and services directly from 100% VA-Verified SDVOSBs. This system, called GoVets, has millions of products from over 100 SDVOSBs, and growing.
GoVets makes it easy for commercial enterprises to save money while achieving their supplier diversity goals and managing the risks associated with their supplier diversity obligations. That includes commercial enterprises using GoVets as a way to proactively ensure that they are meeting federal subcontracting requirements. Commercial enterprises realize the public relations and relationship-building benefits of robustly supporting the veteran, disadvantaged, and minority communities.
GoVets is an easy-to-use platform for government agencies to make micro-purchases. With a newly raised micro-purchase threshold from $3.5K to $10K for civilian agencies, the NVSBC is working to ensure that this platform becomes the electronic ordering marketplace of choice for the VA and other federal agencies. Additionally, the 2019 NDAA is proposing to raise micro-purchases to $25K for products purchased using an electronic ordering platform.
Our goal is to make GoVets the Amazon for SDVOSBs, and our purpose is simple: We serve those who have served our country. At GoVets, every order you place goes directly to a verified veteran seller. We are not a “middle man” – we are simply a resource for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses. We are the “marketplace of marketplaces” that offers preferential pricing for government purchases. No matter the order size, shipping is always free to the government. If you are a VA-verified SDVOSB who has products to sell, contact GoVets at firstname.lastname@example.org today to get your products uploaded to this ordering platform.
