Salisbury On Track For Veterans Preference Program

SALISBURY — A small business and veteran-owned small business procurement preference program will likely see implementation in Salisbury following a successful review in work session this week.

If adopted, the program could be a stepping stone for related initiatives in veteran hiring and minority business preferences.

Under the suggested guidelines, the preference program would give what amounts to a slight score bonus to bids for service submitted by qualified companies for city projects. For example, if a veteran-owned small business and a larger business submitted identical bids for the same Salisbury construction contract, then under the proposal the former would receive a small percentage bump to their bid score.
