It also requires IDOA to adopt rules, develop policies and set forth guidelines regarding contracting opportunities for VOSBs. IDOA must report annually the percentage of state contracts with Hoosier VOSBs. Finally, SEA 564 allows the Indiana Economic Development Corporation to assist in various aspects of the VOSB initiative, including maintaining a list of Indiana VOSBs, assisting VOSBs with bidding procedures and compliance, and simplifying specifications and contract terms to increase opportunities for VOSB participation.
