Specialists in Construction Materials Purchasing and Management
SISU can also provide increased value and control working directly with general contractors:
Working with SISU Supply Chain Management provides increased risk management – providing the peace of mind knowing that material vendors are being paid. In both scenarios, working directly for owner/developers or general contractors, SISU provides added value to its clients.
Working with SISU Supply Chain Management on Federal, State or Municipal projects carries further benefits as SISU is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). Both Federal and California State law provide incentives for businesses owned by Service-Disabled Veterans.
The Veterans Benefit Act of 2003 (15 U.S.C. 657f) created the procurement program for Service Disabled Veterans to provide Federal contracting assistance to SDVOSB concerns. The law states that three-percent of all prime and subcontracts are to be set aside for SDVOSBs. This permits contracting officers to restrict competition to small businesses owned and controlled by service-disabled veterans if the contracting officer has a reasonable expectation that no less than two SDVOSBs will submit offers and the award can be made at a fair market price.
Similar to the Federal requirements, Senate Bill 115 of the State of California mandates that State agencies must award at least 3% of their annual contract dollars to certified Disabled Veteran Business Entities (DVBE). However, State agencies may specific any amount of DVBE participation for an individual solicitation, as long as they achieve an annual 3% goal.
