My answer to Do Federal agencies routinely hire disabled veterans for contract surveillance work?

Answer by Ken Larson:

Agencies for the most part do not hire individuals for this type of work, but rather companies that are disabled veteran owned or those who qualify under the other small business set aside designations.

The work is usually placed on a service contracts commonly known as “System Engineering and Technical Support” programs.

SETA contracting is often utilized by the government to enhance agency statistics requiring firms that hold setaside small business designations and who can offer quality services in support of the internal agency facilities or operations.

THE NATURE OF THE WORK

Typical SETA efforts may involve long term contracts to perform acquisition assistance, project management, price or program analysis, independent estimates, administrative support, computer and data base operations, technical and security services, facilities maintenance functions or similar tasks. The typical SETA contractor rarely interacts with other government contractors and if interaction occurs it is only with other SETA contractors and subcontractors performing in similar roles at the same agency or in the presence of a government contracting officer/authorized representative. They are generally behind the scenes and cannot directly represent the US Government.

SETA contracting requires skilled management and labor resources capable of performing a scope of work for which the government has identified a need and for which outsourcing to an industry contractor has been selected as the means to fulfill that need. The venue demands strong human resources management and an enhanced business system to price, account and bill on a job cost basis under government service contracts.
