Minnesota Creates More Veteran Owned Small Business Opportunities

March 5th, 2015

Change in State Purchasing Policy Creates More Opportunities for Veteran Owned Businesses

Minnesota AdminThe Minnesota Department of Administration announced it will enhance the ability of certain small businesses to compete for state contracts. The initiative began February 1st, when small businesses owned by women, minorities, people with physical disabilities, or veterans bid for state contracts, existing preferences will apply to a larger portion of the contract’s value. This increase also applies to small businesses located in economically disadvantaged areas of the state.

The State’s procurement preference programs aim to reduce disparities in state purchasing and contracting, as well as in the overall economy. Current law provides for a preference of up to six percent when qualified groups bid on state projects. But that preference has been capped at applying to only the first $500,000 of a contract’s value since 1999. On February 1, that cap increases to apply to $1 million of contract value, resulting in an increase from $30,000 to $60,000 in the maximum value of the preference.

This change can affect more than 1,000 small businesses that are currently certified as veteran-owned or targeted group businesses in Minnesota based on the business’s ownership by woman, minority, person with a disability, or by its location in an economically disadvantaged area.

Arizona Wounded Warrior to Receive New Custom Remodeled Home

Jared Allen's Homes 4 Wounded WarriorsPeak One Builders

Jared Allen’s Homes 4 Wounded Warriors Project (JAH4WW) has announced the recipient of their next custom built home. Sergeant First Class Cory Remsburg, of Arizona, will be handed the keys to his new remodeled home built specifically for his unique needs in Mid-March, 2015. Peak One Builders (A Proud Veteran Owned Business Member) and JAH4WW (A proud Veteran Owned Business Non-Profit Member) have worked together on many homes for wounded warriors over the years.

Nonprofit Member BadgeJared Allen’s Homes 4 Wounded Warriors is a non-profit organization created for the sole purpose of building or modifying homes for America’s injured veterans to provide comfortable and accessible living conditions. Headquartered in Scottsdale, AZ, JAH4WW was founded in 2009 by NFL Pro-Bowl Defensive End Jared Allen, of the Chicago Bears. Cory Remsburg joined the Army at age 18 and underwent intense, specialized training to become an Elite Army Ranger, eventually becoming the leader of his company’s heavy weapons squad. On October 1, 2009, during his tenth deployment to the Middle East, his platoon was hit by a roadside bomb in the Kandahar region in Afghanistan and Cory suffered a penetrating head wound with shrapnel lodged in his brain. His injuries left Cory in a coma for over three months and required dozens of surgeries. After years of rehabilitation, Cory has made a miraculous recovery, though he is partially paralyzed on his left side, and blind in his right eye.Modifications to Cory’s new home will include a widening of all doorways, installation of new accessible appliances and fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchen and new special flooring. In 2014, JAH4WW kicked off a remodel commencement ceremony for Remsburg. This year, JAH4WW is beyond excited to complete the remodel and proudly hand over the keys to Army Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg.
