Red One Medical is the perfect partner for small medical device companies who are looking to break into the Federal marketplace or expand their access to Federal contracts and awards. Among the many advantages Red One can offer is our vast network of partners within the Federal government. We have pre-established relationships and direct lines to many Federal agencies and programs to include the Service Disabled Veterans Owned Small Business Program (SDVOSB). Our SDVOSB status gives us access to SDVOSB set aside contracting opportunities as well as unique access to subcontracting plans with major manufacturers and distributors. This is beneficial to small medical device companies because we can use our SDVOSB status to give you prime access to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) while harnessing our relationships within the VA and other agencies to give your company and its products and services exposure to these agencies. Because we partner with many small and large manufacturers and distributors, we often put together solutions for Federal agencies which no one company could offer alone. Many small companies have the perfect piece to complete the puzzle and solve an agency’s problem but they are never considered because they either can’t supply the whole solution (Which might be outside their scope or beyond their resources) or because they don’t have access to the select channels necessary to gain access to critical government programs. Red One solves both of those problems by bringing our manufactures and distributors together to provide complete solutions to Federal agencies and by cutting the red tape and giving you prime access through direct channels to government set asides or the Federal programs necessary to succeed.
Red One Medical as a SDVOSB Reseller and Facilitator
Acting as an SDVOSB Reseller we facilitate the sale of products and services on behalf of you, our partner. Each Federal agency has a directive which dictates what types of set aside contracts have priority status within that agency. A hierarchy is then established within each agency to determine which set aside status gets the most priority and the greatest number of set aside contracts are then assigned to that status. For example, when it comes to the VA, the Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) status has the highest priority and the most set aside contracts assigned to it, followed by the Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) and then 8(a), HUBZone, WOSB and the lastly Small Business Enterprise status.
Leveraging Our Resources To Compete
The Rule of Two:
Our existing relationships with Federal agencies and our ability to harness the resources of all of our partners play a large role in what we do, but our SDVOSB status also plays a special role in giving small businesses access to the Federal marketplace. In order to understand how our access to SDVOSB can help you, you must first understand how the government treats small business set asides.
The government encourages small businesses to compete for Federal contracts but they are selective in deciding what type of small business qualifies for specific set aside programs. There is a rule in the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) which mandates that any contract between $3,000 and $150,000 is specifically set aside for small businesses only.
If there aren’t any qualified small businesses competing on these small business set aside contracts they can then open them up to large companies but they must first justify their decision and it has to be signed off on by the person responsible for finding qualified small businesses in that office, the Small Business Advocate. Red One has extensive relationships with contracting officers, program managers and small business advocates whose job it is to fulfill these set aside mandates.
As an Experienced Federal Contractor We Understand the Keys to Successfully Working With Federal Agencies and We Teach You, Our Partners These Ethical Skill Sets. Our Goal Is To Get Your Products Into The Hands Of The Agencies, Hospitals & Clinics That Need Them And To Make The Process as Easy and as Painless as Possible.
What exactly is Service Disabled Veterans Owned Small Business status (SDVOSB)?
How does it help me gain access to special government contracts?
There are several Federal initiatives that give Red One’s SDVOSB status prime access.
The Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act of 1999 established an annual government-wide goal of not less than 3% of the total value of all prime contract and subcontract awards for participation by small business concerns owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans.
The Veterans Benefits Act of 2003 established a procurement program for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concerns (SDVOSBC). This procurement program mandates that Federal contracting officers may restrict competition to SDVOSBs and award a sole source or set aside contract where certain criteria are met.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) grants the highest priority to SDVOSB and VOSB for set aside and sole source contracts. This procurement authority and its subsequent implementation is a logical extension of the VA’s mission, to care for our nation’s Veterans. The VA refers to this program as the Veterans First Contracting Program (Per VA Acquisition Regulation Part 808, required sources of supplies and services for the priorities in acquisition).
