LAVETBIZ is a business initiative established to provide additional opportunities for Louisiana based Veteran (VSE) and service-connected disabled Veteran (DVSE) owned small business owners when they seek work with the State of Louisiana. LAVETBIZ certified businesses can receive up to 10% evaluation points when bidding on RFPs through the State of Louisiana, giving LAVETBIZ businesses the competitive edge you earned through your military service.
LAVETBIZ is supported by compliance mandates which are enforced through the Louisiana Division of Administration.
