- Local small business enters VA contractor pool
- Business owned by husband and wife team, both veterans, eligible for VA “set aside” contracts
ELK GROVE, Calif., August 30, 2018 / Press Release / – Gold Rush Publishing, an Elk Grove-based business offering publishing, graphic design, and printing services, was recognized by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE). The company, owned by husband and wife team Margaret and Mark Arsenault, was verified as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). The company was also added to the Vendor Information Pages (VIP) at https://www.vip.vetbiz.gov and will be eligible to participate in Veterans First Contracting Program opportunities with the VA.
“We appreciate when the government recognizes our service,” said Margaret Arsenault, co-owner of Gold Rush Publishing. “It’s not a matter of leveling the playing field. It’s about rewarding the sacrifice of veterans with the opportunity to do business with the VA.”
Both Margaret and her husband are decorated veterans who served during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Margaret, who owns 51% of the business, is a disabled veteran, which made the business eligible for the distinction. The verification is valid for three years and it allows Gold Rush Publishing to use the distinctive “SDVOSB verification” logo.
In the Vets First Contracting Program, Gold Rush Publishing is now eligible to apply for VA contracts reserved for Veteran-Owned Service-Disabled (VOSB) and SDVOSBs. The company is also eligible to subcontract with VA’s large prime contractors. VA is one of the largest procurement organizations in the Federal Government, spending more than $3 billion annually with eligible Veteran-Owned Small Businesses. That’s a lot of opportunity!
“This is an amazing opportunity for our publishing and graphic design business,” said Mark Arsenault, co-owner of Gold Rush Publishing. “Even one VA procurement contract could mean a substantial boost to our business, not to mention more revenue for the local economy.”
