The State of New Mexico offers up to a 10 advantage to resident VOBs bidding on state contracts. Starting July 1, 2012 and continuing through June 30, 2022, New Mexico VOBs who wish to obtain the resident veteran business preference or resident veteran contractor preference must first apply for and obtain certification through the New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department. The TRD Certification is valid for three years from the date of issuance as long as the business continues to meet the necessary requirements.

TRD certified businesses may obtain a bidding preference when participating in a formal bid process or formal request for proposal process for the sales of goods or services to a New Mexico state or local public body.
