Procurements Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business (SDVOB) Program


New York State Executive Law Article 17-B, enacted in 2014, governs requirements for the participation of Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Businesses (SDVOBs) in New York State contracting. The objective of Article 17-B is to expand opportunities for SDVOBs, primarily through increased participation in New York State contracting.

The Workers' Compensation Board (WCB) is committed to achieving the statewide goal of increasing opportunities for New York State SDVOB Program and encourages participation of SDVOBs in WCB procurement projects. The WCB has established a minimum goal of 6% for SDVOB participation in WCB contracts. For more information, email us at

We encourage any business that believes it meets the state requirements for certification to visit the Division of Service-Disabled Veterans' Business Development for more information about the program and how to apply for certification.

WCB's primary objectives for the SDVOB Program are:
