VETERANS' BUSINESS OUTREACH CENTER (VBOC)
The New Mexico Department of Veterans’ Services created the Veteran’s Business Outreach Center (VBOC) to help veterans who want to start their own small businesses, and help existing veteran-owned businesses expand their operations.
The NMDVS has formed a strong partnership with the Albuquerque regional offices of the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Small Business Development Center to assist veteran-owned businesses with formulating a business plan, marketing strategy, or assist with applying for Patriot Express Loans or other low-interest business loans.
The VBOC also educates federal contractors (prime and sub-prime), purchasing agents, and service-disabled veteran-owned business owners about Public Laws 106-50, 108-183, 109-461, and Presidential Executive Order 13360—federal laws which set a federal goal that 3% of all federally-awarded contracts be awarded to service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOB’s).The VBOC will assist SDVOB’s as well as any other veteran-owned business in all phases of bidding on federal contracts.
