In 2003 the Small Business Administration (SBA) announced a launch of a
pilot program - the SBA Exchange - which was to be dream come true for Small
Business; an electronic tool designed to facilitate small business
procurement opportunities. The Small Business Administration's first problem
was that - the SBA Exchange Program - WAS NOT FREE!  The SBA Exchange was to
charge each participating small business $1,500 per year, plus a 2%
"transaction fee" assessed on the value of each contract the business was
awarded.  For that yearly $1,500 and the 2% " transaction fee", the business
was to get exposure to federal buying authorities & large federal prime
contractors, capability statement posting, and a centralized order
management system.  Of course, there were no guarantees a business would get
a contract.  For the next three years - the SBA Exchange - launch was
delayed, delayed, and then it died on the vine.  In 2006 the Small Business
Administration abandoned - the SBA Exchange - without it ever being
launched. 

The www.SDAV.org <http://www.sdav.org/>  is an independent foundation (no
connection with the federal government) - 100 percent dedicated to fostering
the development, growth and success of Veteran Owned and Service Disabled
Veteran Owned business. At a time when the Government has failed year after
year to meet the Veteran's Set-Aside challenges, it seems worthwhile to
examine the SDAV closely as a possible resource to help keep veteran owned
business thriving.

 

The Service Disabled American Veterans Foundation (SDAV) has been looking
for innovative ways to assist veterans to transform themselves into thriving
construction, supply and service delivery companies.  The product of the
SDAV three year search is a new initiative called the Veterans Business
Network Project (www.VetBizNetwork.net <http://www.vetbiznetwork.net/> ).
The VetBizNetwork is a streamlined tool that will help veteran owned and
service disable owned businesses access acquisitions and sole source
contracts under Public Law 108-183.  The SDAV "Veterans Business Network
Project" will allow agencies to find and award to Veteran Owned and Service
Disabled Veteran Owned business.  No more excuses, "we could not locate a
SDVOB".  Additionally, the SDAV "Veterans Business Network Project" offers
Veteran Owned and Service Disabled Veteran Owned businesses opportunity for
a heads up by sharing Government Procurement Opportunities.  

 

The SDAV "Veterans Business Network Project" has a zero dollar entry cost
and requires little or no technical expertise or equipment investment.  It
is an opportunity that every Veteran Owned and Service Disabled Veteran
Owned business should visit by clicking www.SDAV.org <http://www.sdav.org/>
and then selecting the VetBizNetwork option.

 

I know you are busy but when you have the time please stop by and take a
look at the SDAV "Veterans Business Network Project" (www.VetBizNetwork.net
<http://www.vetbiznetwork.net/> ).  

 

Thank you in advance,

How do I unsubscribe from a list?                    Why was I subscribed to
a list? 

Generally, the easiest way to perform common actions on a list is to use the
list's Info Page, which is located at http://www.freelists.org/list/wired. 

You can also unsubscribe by sending email to Wired-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
with "unsubscribe" in the Subject. 

Obviously, both of these methods require that you know what the list name
is. If you don't know, just look at where the messages you're receiving from
the list are being addressed. The To: header will contain
Wired@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx 

Usually, an "unexpected" subscription is the result of the list you're on
having been moved from another mailing list provider to FreeLists. You were
subscribed to the list before but not receiving email from it, and now you
suddenly are. This is a common problem. 

Sometimes, you'll be mistakenly subscribed by the list owner. 

And sometimes, you simply forgot that you subscribed, or subscribed yourself
without realizing it. It's ok, it happens. :)
