The Wisconsin State Bureau of Procurement Veteran Owned Business Policy PRO-D-12 is part of the small, disadvantaged, minority, women, and veteran (SDMWV) business enterprise certification programs which were established to increase business opportunities for the SDMWV business communities in an attempt to award at least 5% of state contracts to these groups.

These groups may be eligible for a low bid waiver as long as their bid is not more than 5% greater than the lowest bid. The State encourages SDVOBs to participate by “reducing undue impediments.”

Assembly Bill 288 creates preferences in state contracts for certain disabled veteran-owned businesses certified by the Department of Commerce similar to preferences available to certified minority-owned businesses.
