The twenty eight corporations that make up the have voted to include Service Disabled and Veteran Owed Businesses (SD/VOBs) certified by the National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC) in their qualified diversity spend.
“This incredible next step in recognizing and accepting our certified SD/VOBs changes the entire market. The NVBDC is honored to have been named by the members of the BDR as their accepted SD/VOB certification body. To fully understand what this means to our veteran business owners; they must now accept their responsibility to adopt and embrace the corporate certification standards. We cannot stress enough that Veteran Businesses must realize the corporate certification standards are different than what the VA/CVE offers. Self-certification is obsolete and with this announcement the BDR has made it clear that certification of SD/VOBs must meet their “best practice” corporate standards,” said Keith King, President of the NVBDC.
