Pentagon increases small-business contracts to disabled veterans
The Defense Department finally met its goal in 2014 for awarding contracts to small businesses run by disabled veterans, improving on what was admittedly an "atrocious" record. Steering contracts to disabled vets "was an area in which we have made a lot of progress, but I think we still have some ways to go, and that one is obviously of particular concern to the Department," Frank Kendall, the Under Secretary of Defense for acquisition, said at a Pentagon briefing with Small Business Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet.
