Adroit Medical Systems is a Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB), and the only VOSB that manufactures patient warming systems (forced air warming, water-circulating mattress pads, heating pads and heat reflective blankets and apparel); federal agencies, distributors and hospital Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) can use Adroit’ VOSB status to meet their VOSB SBC contracting obligations.

VOSB Certification – Consistent with Public Law 109-461, awarding contracts to Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) firms is the highest priority within the Small Business programs for VA. Consistent with the mandate and the mission of VA, participation of SDVOSBs in VA Acquisition programs is strongly encouraged. OSDBU is the advocate that monitors the Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB) Program, with a special emphasis on SDVOSBs. Under the authority granted in Public Law 109-461, VA is authorized to set aside contracts and/or award sole source contracts, to SDVOSB and VOSB firms.

Public Law (P.L.) 109-461 entitled “Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006” provides the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) with unique authority for contracting with service-disabled Veteran-owned (SDVOSB) and Veteran- owned small businesses (VOSB). A new procurement hierarchy within VA for open market procurements was created which places our highest priority with SDVOB followed by VOSB. This procurement authority, and its subsequent implementation, is a logical extension of VA’s mission, to care for our nation’s Veterans. VA refers to this program as the Veterans First Contracting Program. See 48 CFR § 808 in the Quick Links box for the Federal priorities in acquisition.
