Pursuant to section 34.074, RSMo, and 1 CSR 40-1.050, the Division of Purchasing and Materials Management (DPMM) has a goal of awarding three (3) percent of all contracts for the performance of any job or service to qualified service-disabled veteran business enterprises (SDVEs). In addition, a three (3) bonus point preference shall be granted to a bidder/offeror who meets the requirements of a SDVE on bids/proposals for the performance of any job or service, except for a no cost contract and any other exception provided for (1 CSR 40-1.050) and as approved by the Director of the DPMM. The three (3) percent goal can be met, and the bonus points obtained, by a qualified SDVE vendor in non-weighted and weighted criteria procurements and/or through the use of qualified subcontractors or suppliers in weighted criteria procurements that provide at least three (3) percent of the total contract value.
The OA/DPMM maintains this database that lists vendors that have previously provided the required documentation indicating their SDVE status. This database provides each vendor’s name, contact information, commodities/services provided, SDV name, and expiration month/year of the certification. (Note: A vendor will be removed from the database if the vendor does not renew their certification.)
