EFC is committed to promoting participation opportunities for New York State (“State”) certified service-disabled veteran-owned business enterprises (“SDVOBs”) in the performance of EFC contracts as well as contracts that receive financial assistance through EFC’s various programs. As such, EFC complies with, and requires all contractors and subcontractors working on EFC contracts as well as projects receiving EFC State financial assistance to comply with, State Executive Law Article 17-B and 9 NYCRR Part 252. EFC further encourages all contractors and subcontractors working on projects receiving federal financial assistance to utilize SDVOBs on their contracts/subcontracts.
In order to encourage and support certified SDVOBs to play a greater role in the State’s economy by increasing their participation in the State’s contracting opportunities, EFC has established a 6% SDVOB participation goal, and will consider SDVOBs for set-aside and discretionary purchasing opportunities.
Additional information regarding EFC’s corporate procurements, including potential procurement opportunities for SDVOBs, can be found under Public Information.
