At the 40th Anniversary Symposium for SBA’s Office of Advocacy, June 22, 2016 in Washington, D.C., former Chief Counsels reminisce. Still, 40 years after the creation of the Office of Advocacy and other legislation was passed, the Office of Advocacy still needs more influence to enforce required small business review panels at many federal agencies that regularly ignore the well-being of small businesses across America.

A Very Important Ruling: Kingdomware Technologies v. US
By David T. Boddie
The Supreme Court ruling is very strong for Veterans 8 to 0. The Rule of Two preference for Veterans is fine with the Court and the unanimous vote is hard to argue with. And it’s not going to change anytime soon. The Rule of Two is a mandatory requirement for the Veterans Administration.
This small business won its case. It mattered that Kingdomware Technologies won its case. It’s a validation of the entire concept that Veteran-Owned Small Businesses deserve the preference that The U.S. Congress enacted into law. It wasn’t thrown out, nobody challenged it and said you guys don’t deserve it, nobody said it’s unconstitutional or anything like that. Its fine with the Supremes.
How many other small businesses would go to the trouble?
After four years in pursuit of the ruling, a lot of help and pro bono, the heroic efforts of Kingdomware Technologies paid off.
Who else is going to challenge to their right of a preference after this court ruling?
